Coelacanth Bones

Fossildude19

Bones of a partial late Triassic coelacanth, Diplurus newarki.
These layers are extremely hard to split. However, these layers (partially metamorphosed?) also preserve bones and scales very well, either in white or blue.
(The blue is indicative of de-phosphatization.)

The first and second dorsal fin bones are just visible -still partially covered at the top of the fossil.
Also visible are the partially disarticulated Y-shaped vertebral bones (veterbral processes?)
Note also the blue scales.

Late Triassic, (Rhaetian).
Lockatong Formation,
Newark Supergroup,
North Bergen, NJ.
