Two specimens were obtained from an amber deposit in the Angbamo area, Tanai Village, Hukawng Valley of Myanmar. Age was estimated at 99 Ma ago (98.8 ± 0.6 Ma ago; earliest Cenomanian) based on U-Pb dating of zircons from the volcaniclastic matrix containing the amber (12). Two specimens were cataloged as DIP-V-15104 and DIP-S-0907. DIP-V-15104 was 44.5 by 46.8 mm and 8.61 g in weight; DIP-S-0907 was 17.1 by 24.8 by 39.0 mm and 9.30 g in weight. The original specimens are housed in the DIP, Chaozhou, China.

The pieces of amber were examined with a Leica MZ 12.5 dissecting microscope with a drawing tube attachment. Photographs were taken using a Canon digital camera (5D Mark III, MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5X) fitted to a macro rail (Cognisys) and processed in Helicon Focus 5.1. Final figures were prepared with Photoshop CS5 (Adobe) and Illustrator CS5 (Adobe).
