DIP-V-17118 amber overview for syninclusions and flow lines. Whole amber specimen in natural light, directly comparable to Fig. 2C,D. Left: Internal surface and specimen view with ostracod specimen clearly visible, with distinct orange convex anterolateral eye tubercle, brownish to dark grey frass particles (strongly distinct from the eye tubercle), as well as associated faunal inclusions (Spiders, Araneae, Oonopidae?) relatively near to the polished amber surface. Right: External surface view of valve, where ostracod is deeply buried under secondary resin flow with numerous insect frass pellets and organic particulates.
