Flies Humping for 41 Million Years in Pornographic Amber

Flies Humping for 41 Million Years in Pornographic Amber

HUMPING FLIES ENDED IN STYLE 41 MILLION YEARS AGO IN AMBER

So we all want to be immortalized.  Somehow.  But I’m not sure this is what any of us should be aiming for?  I mean, it’s cool.  And pretty unique.  But if I’m ever caught in flagrante, I’d rather be alive.  Shoot, I’d be happy to be in flagrante.  But for these two flies, they were humping at the very end and never, ever stopped.  Because that’s what happens to insects in amber.  There they are, forever.  And these two flies were humping it up 41 million years ago!  Sure, we all want to make it last.  But seriously….

So the two humping long-legged flies had some tree resin fall on them in situ 41 million years ago.  Now, we all get to enjoy this pornographic amber.  But these humping flies are pretty unusual, to say the least.  But that’s because most specimens in amber are from the northern hemisphere.  Myanmar in particular is famous for them.  But these humping flies as well as some prehistoric spiders, midges and ants are all from the southern hemisphere.  They’re in the news from a recent paper in Scientific Reports.

HUMPING FLIES OVERSHADOWED BY 99 MILLION YEAR OLD DADDY LONGLEGS ERECTION

So some more details on these humping flies?  They lived (and humped) in Southern Gondwana back in the Late Middle Eocene.  So in layfly terms, that’s 41 million years ago in what is not Anglesea, Australia.  Well, it could have been worse.  A daddy longlegs in amber has an erection from 99 million years ago.  But amber like these gives us precious information about the critters inside.  We get actual 3d examples of them, for one.  But we also get crazy movie franchises like Jurassic Park, for another.  But so far, no, we can’t really get usable DNA from amber samples.  Even from humping flies.
