Bringing Fossils to Life posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone!

The picture on the top is under normal light, the lower one with a bright light from the side to highlight some details. Could anyone help with ID?

Help with Devonian (Catskill Fm.) Fishes
Peat Burns posted a topic in Fossil IDHello, These plates are from the Catskill Formation (Upper Devonian) of Lycoming County, Pennsylvania. I am not very familiar with Devonian fishes, so I have made my guesses based on abundant forms in the area / formation. I am hoping that some of the Devonian fish experts might be able to verify or otherwise identify them. The first composite photo are scales of what I am calling the lobe-fin Holoptychius sp. The second composite photo is armor of what I am tentatively calling Bothriolepis sp. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
