  3. Acrognathus dodgei Hay, 1903

    Pity, I'm living in Shanghai at the moment. No chance of getting to Tucson. According to Woodward 1902 it is Scopelidae. I changed the taxonomy to Sardinioididae and Myctophiformes - is that ok? Thomas
  4. Acrognathus dodgei Hay, 1903

    If you will be in Tucson, I can give you a pdf copy of the Forey paper there... so next week I guess. Bob
  5. Acrognathus dodgei Hay, 1903

    Ahh, thank you. I am not very familiar with the fish from Lebanon and I didn't know Forey's work. Unfortunately I cannot find a free copy on the net. Thanks again Thomas
  6. Acrognathus dodgei Hay, 1903

    Thomas, I think that this might be a different species of Acrognathus. A. libanicus is described from Sahel Alma, the Santonian site in Lebanon. The specimens from Haqel and Hadjula were named A. dodgei, Hay, 1903. This diagnosis is reinforced in Forey, et. al., 2003 in their paper about Namoura. Bob

  10. Cockerellites liops

  11. Mioplosus labracoides

  12. Palaeoisopus problematicus BROILI, 1928

    To calm down for arachnophobians, sea spiders are only distant relatives of spiders
  13. Palaeoisopus problematicus BROILI, 1928

    Up to 40cm in diameter? That would be horror for people with arachnophobia.
  14. Saurorhynchus sp.

    Beautiful Saurorhynchus!!! Thanks for sharing.
  15. Mellita aclinensis

    Yes ! Nice ! Coco
  16. Mellita aclinensis

    It's a beauty! Funny how just down the road or even a few hundred yards away a pit can have complete echinoids. Go figure!
  17. Anaethalion angustus (Muenster, 1832)

    Exquisite, Thomas!
  18. Tagelus plebeius

    What a beauty!
