Hardhead Catfish  Otolith #1, Front (Arius felis)

Hardhead Catfish Otolith #1, Front (Arius felis)

PA Fossil Finder

A fish otolith, probably from the Hardhead Catfish (Arius felis) but it also closely resembles a Gafftopsail Catfish otolith (Bagre marinus) from the Melbourne Bone Bed (10,000 - 20,000 years old). It's a rather angular fossil, so I used clay to position it for the photo. Found in microfossil matrix gathered from a dredge spoil island near Merritt Island, Florida.
