Interesting!

Yeah I'm going with the explanation that they used it for the sap of gymnosperms, that was my first thought upon reading the headline.

My theory is that they were blood  sucking monstrosities that had to change their diet when the dinos died out. I knew you couldn't trust something that perfect. Flitting around without a care in the world. How dare they! Next thing you know they'll be applying for welfare, smoking pot, and loitering at flower shops everywhere. Some, I assume, are good bugs though. *shakes fist at cheery entomologists*

It is rather, 'flowers' that I think which needs a whole new outlook ... flowers back then does not look like what it does today, which most of which does not look like we think they do in the wild if at all ...

They were probably sucking blood from dinosaur eyes ! Bloodthirsty creatures, don't ever take their cuteness for granted !
