A team of researchers from U of R, Royal Saskatchewan Museum, and Institute of Life Sciences and Technologies at Daugavpils University in Latvia, have now identified what appears to be organic matter in a 44-million-year-old beetle fossilized in amber.
Dr. Ryan McKellar, Curator of paleontology at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, says the remains of organic chitin, one of the main components of the exoskeleton of insects, is what was preserved.
