100-million-year old crab in amber rewrites ancient crustacean history - CNET

The tiny crab, Cretapsara athanata, was discovered in Myanmar.

During the Cretaceous period some 100 million years ago, a tiny crustacean crawled out from its marine home and climbed a tree.

While it's common to see crabs climbing trees today, the fossil record indicated their ancestors started to crawl out of the water about 75 to 50 million years ago. .

There's also potential it was migrating onto land, from water, like the famous red crabs of Christmas Island

Following a military coup by the Tatmadaw in Myanmar in early 2021, the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology drafted an open letter calling for a moratorium on studies of Myanmar amber specimens obtained after January 2021 but note the Tatmadaw had taken control of the mines back in 2017.
