This is so far the oldest bee fossil ever discovered, the bad news? its a male! since females are the ones responsible for pollinating scientists will
not fully understand
how this bee affected the pollination process back in time.
This will also give enough DNA material to compare to a modern day bee of simmilar species (Melittosphex burmensis) and see if any differences do
arise? proof for evolution? who knows.....
Wow 100 million years, most people cant even comprehend how much time that is. I wander why bees and other species have had little evolutionary
changes and yet some species like us for an example changed so dramatically.
