From the album: Fossildude's Purchased/Gift FossilsAnother bargain from our favorite auction site. I didn't have any fish from the 18 inch layer, and the price was right.

I've finally gotten around to prepping some Green River fish I dug from Warfield Fossil Quarry about 10 years ago. I've identified several of them as a specific Knightia species, but I'm not sure of the correct species name. According to Paleontology of the Green River Formation, with a Review of the Fish Fauna," Geological Survey of Wyoming Bulletin 63, by Gary Glass, published in 1984, the correct identification is Knightia humilis, with K. eocaena being a junior homonym. But according to A Revision of the Fossil Genus Knightia, With a Description of a New Genus from the Green River Forma
