A complete, if yet unprepped, specimen of the late Triassic coelacanth, Diplurus newarki.
Not sure how I will go about prepping this, but I have a few options.

Wow, that one should be really nice! I wonder if you could get it X-rayed? I recall many years ago seeing a published X-ray of one of these; it might also help guide the prep to know where things are in there.

Congrats. I have an idea how hard you work for those fish, a complete one must be really special.

Don,

That's a neat idea.

I may go to see if I can have this thing x-rayed. That might be cool.

Thanks for the nice compliments.

Kind regards,

Tim

Tim,

I agree. That looks like a complete specimen. Big congratulations. Hope you can find some way to remove that shale covering. So nice to know what's under there. Thanks for posting this and the others. Looks like you had a great day.

Thanks Jeff! I hope I can prep it out, too.

I did have a very good day there. Maybe some more finds will come to you from the shale you have yet to split.

;)

Congrats - can't wait to see it prepped! Will be an awesome fish.

Thanks, Thomas. I will post a photo when I get it more exposed.

Regards,

Tim.
