... ). Like Eckfeld Maar, the Messel pit fossil site formerly was a deep maar lake ( Harms, 2002 ) in which a very diverse taphocoenosis was trapped. Until now, ongoing excavations have yielded about 15,000 insect fossils that are deposited mainly in the collections of the Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg (FIS...
