Liaoning Province in northeast China has remained one of the hottest paleontology study sites on earth the past two decades. Liaoning is perhaps most famous for discoveries of feathered dinosaurs. From feathered dinosaurs to birds to reptiles with color patterns, the fine lake silts of Liaoning preserved the most intricate of life from more than 100 million years ago. Relatively hard to preserve insects are well represented in the diverse Liaoning biota. This cockroach fossil from the age of dinosaurs exhibits many fine details such as the venation in the wings, and is rather amazingly preserved in an off-white color. There are two other unidentified insects.
