In Antarctica found the bug by the age of 14 million years.
Scientists from the University of North Dakota and the Smithsonian institution have discovered in Antarctica frozen fossils that were prednisalone wings of a beetle.
The researchers found the remains near the Transantarctic mountains.
This extinct species of insects have become the first species of ground beetles ever revealed in Antarctica.
It is reported that the insects are relatives of the ancient beetles once lived in Gondwana, and they can give us new data on how Antarctica became the frozen glacier.
The presence of beetles indicates that the continent for some time has been the plants, moss and even trees. The insect can live in areas where there was melted water and sparse vegetation.
This finding suggests that Antarctica was relatively warm after millions of years, after it separated from the supercontinent Gondwana.
