Ambush bug (Order: Hemiptera) in amber:
This colorful nymph of a bug that by virtue of the large "forearms" is most likely an Ambush Bug. The fact that the wings are absent shows it to be a nymph. Unlike some insects, bugs undergo an incomplete metamorphosis, with several instars (nymphal) stages before maturation. Bugs are members of the Order Hemiptera, and most make a living using their piecing mouthparts to suck plant juices. A few, like the ambush bug, use their piercing mouthparts to suck the lifeblood from other insects (yecchh!).
