Re: insects - not! (OT)

I don't know much about arachnids and insects, but what sets arachnids apart that allows them to be fossilized?

Nothing. As a result, they don't get fossilized any more often. Add to this that, at least if we ignore mites, insects are much more common to start with in any ecosystem...
