Products description

Here is a relatively large fossil cockroach (Blattodea) from the Cretaceous amber of Myanmar (former Burma). It is very likely  the new species Magniocula apiculata, which was just recently described in 2019. Even if this specimen is not 100% complete, enough species characteristics can be recognized. In particular, the rather characteristic bristles on the legs agree very well with L. Qiu et al, 2019 * Plate 2, Fig. F.
The fossil cockroach is about 12 mm long.
