One of the Most Famous Fossil-Bearing Localities in Russia
As many as several thousands specimens may be discovered over one square metre. Frequently, remains represent molting skins of pre-adult stages only.
Intact fossils with complete appendages are not rare. Generally, smaller insects like aphids and gnats are better preserved. As a rule, the cuticle is preserved, often demonstrating very delicate structures such as microsetae and sensillae.
