There was a recent article in the Washington Post about a group that was
attempting to revive spores from an extinct bee held in amber.  These spores
were from bacteria that lived in the bee's stomach.  The theory was that these
spores contained little water and could be preserved for millions of years.  The

article was in the October 2nd or 3rd edition of the Washington Post on page

Hope this helps.
