The central inclusion is the illusive (how many have you seen in the wild lately) and stealthy (did you look right at it and not see it) Phasmida, a.k.a., walking stick. Rare they are in nature and hence in amber. The stealthy walking stick is not alone. The fossil resin tomb is shared by a flying Isopteran, 5 Dipterans, and a tiny spider.

Phasmida (walking stick) in Amber - Age: Pleistocene to Pliocene. Amber is 79 by 55 mm; Location: Andes Mountains in Colombia.
