This one in particular, Halitherses grimaldii, was probably doing it with a female when he perhaps fell into oozing resin, packing his pecker for eternity, according to scientists behind a study describing the finding.
“This is the first record of a male copulatory organ of this nature preserved in amber and is of special importance due to the age of the deposit,” researchers explain in the study, which was published in The Science of Nature on Jan. 28. “The #penis has a slender, distally flattened truncus, a spatulate heart-shaped glans and a short distal stylus, twisted at the tip.”
Dr. Jason Dunlop, study leader and a researcher at the Berlin Museum for Natural #History, told National Geographic that penis shape can differentiate families of daddy longlegs, or harvestmen.
