How many more insects will rise to fame in 2020? 

Fortunately, unlike "murder hornets" and gypsy moths, the insect recently found in Utah isn't a threat to anyone anymore. Paleontologists in the state discovered a 151-million-year-old fossil of a giant bug called Morrisonnepa Jurassica, the Utah Department of Natural Resources wrote in a blog post. 

Researchers found the fossil in the geologically rich Morrison Formation in southeastern Utah, the DNR's blog post said. 

"The insect fossil consists of most of the abdomen, two elements of the forewing, and possibly the head and is only the second insect body fossil ever discovered from the Morrison Formation,' the DNR wrote.
