  • Three amber pieces containing crangonyctid aquatic amphipods are examined. One of the specimens appears to have the urosome unsegmented, and uropods 3 shortened, resembling extant Synurella sp. In another amber piece there are eight specimens of Palaeogammarus sp. which look as if they had been dry prior to becoming embedded in the resin.
