Fossil Find Is World's Oldest Insect
"Scientists have identified the oldest known insect from its fossilized jaw remains. A report published today in the journal Nature describes the creature, which lived between 408 and 438 million years ago. The results push back the earliest appearance of winged insects by nearly 80 million years and suggest that the creatures were among the first animals to arrive on land."
