"Jianghanichthys" ID? Liaoning(?), Eocene(?)
Squidpastry posted a topic in Fossil IDHello! I've been eyeing this fossil for a little while now, and I'm itching to purchase it. The seller has identified this fossil as a pair of Jianghanichthys, from Liaoning, China. The seller also says that they're from the Eocene. I'm thinking these are misidentified- those spiny fin rays being the most notably "off" feature of this fossil. The one on the right may actually be Jianghanichthys, but really without knowing exactly where these were found and when, I've got no idea! This is a wild guess, but Serranus maybe? Thank you all in advance!
Jianghanichthys - Chan-Han fish fossil
Fossildude19 posted a gallery image in Members Gallery
From the album: Fossildude's Purchased/Gift FossilsJianhanichthys sp. also known as Osteohilus sp. or "Chan Han Fish" Pliocene, Yichuang, Hubei Province, China Gift from my wife a few years ago - this fish is only about 2 inches long. This fossil has quite obviously been "enhanced". You can clearly see that someone used ink to outline the fish, and to extend the broken lower caudal fin. Neat specimen, regardless - mostly bones instead of scales, like many of the others I've seen online.
