    Fish Identification

    Hi everyone, I got this fish at a mineral shop and he had no identification for it. My son thought it might be a knightia or a mioplosus. It also looks to me like it got fossilized when going to the bathroom. Can anyone help me ID it? Am I right about the poop? I'd really appreciate it. Pat

    Mioplosus labracoides

    From the album: Fossildude's Purchased/Gift Fossils

    Mioplosus labracoides from the Green River Formation. No provenance on location, unfortunately. Inexpensive auction find.

    Mioplosus labracoides

    This Mio was pulled from the wall while collecting with a friend where all finds were split between the two of us. In November I prepped it. Added others from American Fossil in 2017 and 2018.

    Removing hard matrix

    I dug this up in Wyoming and was told it's a Mioplosus. The soft sandstone came off with only a bit of effort. Now I'm on to a harder crystalized matrix around the most delicate areas. I don't want to lose any of the carbon so I'm asking for help. I've used dental tools and pen razors so far. I see amazing, beautifully completed fossils on this site with no sandstone on them at all. Is there a method or tool I am unaware of?

    Show Us Your Favorite Fishy!

    Well, we've had Brachiopods and Trilobites, so I figured let's give fish a try! I am going to start this off with my Enchodus marchesettii from the Hakel Quarry of Lebanon. Not only is this fossil 100% complete with the only restoration done was repairing the matrix itself, but I received this from one of my good friends on none other than my birthday! This is my favorite fossil in my ENTIRE collection! More will come from the Greenriver side of my collection, I just gotta get my camera fixed

    Mioplosus labracoides?

    I’m pretty sure this is a Mioplosus labracoides, but I would like some confirmation before I label and frame it. Found in Wyoming, green river formation.

    My 2nd Trip To American Fossil!

    Hello all! This summer I took my yearly trip to Wyoming, and with my luck I again came back with several extremely incredible fossils! I found many less fish this time around, but I did find several more rare ones! I probably only found around 50 fish in the 3 days I was there. I found 8 Phareodus, including 2 juveniles! I found only 1 Mioplosus this year, the fish seems to be avoiding me sadly... I found 3 Priscacara, including a very large Priscacara serrata! I found an interesting Hypsiprisca preserved beautifully on an algea layer, also found several more Amia scales, but one of my favor

    Fish Aspirations!

    One of the rarest and most unique fossils are aspiration pieces! I have been very lucky in acquiring 2 over the course of collecting, neither are incredibly good, but their rarity alone makes them that much more desirable! I would love to see anyone else's fish with eyes bigger than their stomachs!
  11. Hello, I was looking at one of my fossils, a Mioplosus I found in Wyoming to be exact, and I noticed some weird bumps in the rock under the jaw. I was like, "Is that a spine? It cant be." Now, the mouth of the Mioplosus was mangled, so you cant make out the jawline. After seeing what looked like a spinal chord under the mouth, I had a theory, "What if the mangled mouth is actually another fish the Mioplosus was eating when it died?" After gently scraping away some of the rock around the bumps I thought were a spinal chord, I confirmed my theory to be correct
  12. A few weeks ago, I posted asking for advice on splitting fish for Green River. Your advice helped me out A TON, so thank you for that . I ended up leaving with a shrimp, crawdad, 3 Pharo's, 8 Amphiplagas, both species of Hypsiprisca, and many more. But by sheer luck, we ended up finding a bird, which means, we're going back to Wyoming for a CT scan.(And for more splitting) According to Arvid, the bird appears to be a new species, slightly dis-articulated, but it still has it's skull. I'll post pictures of our finds when I get a chance, but I wanted to thank everyone that gave me advice.
  13. I have been on the market for a large Mioplosus for about 3 years. The largest in my collection now is a humble 11". I was wondering if anybody knew someone that was selling or trading for a larger Mioplosus.(Preferably over 15")

    Wyoming Fossil Lake Trip

    Well what a quick dig. We started our trip to Yellowstone and Mt. Rushmore with a couple of stops and our Search for fossils as we searched for two dig sites on our way. Our first stop was U-dig Fossils in Utah. Here we were suppose to hunt for trilobites but after to talking to a couple of people leaving the site they were very disappointed and found only a couple in their 2 hours. So because I had another site to check out we passed on digging there. Plus at 80.00 per person per day it didn’t not fit our plans. So our next stop ended up at the Fossil Safari in Wyoming where we we
  15. My wife and I just got back from a week’s driving tour through Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. We stopped in at American Fossil Quarry outside of Kemmerer, Wyoming, for a few hours to dig for Green River fish. It was a productive day, and we both bagged some nice finds. Seth, the owner of the quarry and a TFF member, wasn’t there that day, but his assistant, Nick, was very helpful in getting us started. I brought a bag full of tools which were mostly unnecessary. As Nick pointed out, all you really need is a brick hammer and a thin chisel, both of which they provide. I noted that since this w

    Mioplosus Prep

    Way back in December, I received a handful of fish from @RJB as a trade for some prep. I finally got the first one done! Here’s how it all began..

    Mioplosus labracoides

    From the album: Green River Formation

    This is a 6 inch long specimen of Mioplosus labracoides, an uncommon fish from the green river formation. The fossils of these fish are highly sought after by collectors because of their slight rarity, preservation, and yes....teeth. Many specimens of Mioplosus like this one exhibit a mouth full of small needlelike teeth. These fish would have lived a solitary life of being a voracious predator. Some specimens of Mioplosus are found with a fish still in their mouth, proof of their insatiable appetite and gluttony.
  18. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the American Fossil quarry in Kemmerer Wyoming this past week and had an amazing time. @sseth and his business partners do an incredible job running the quarry and made my experience there a memorable one by giving me the opportunity to find some beautiful fossils over the two days I was there. These finds include a nice Mioplosus, a beautiful Phareodus and dozens of Knightia. I highly recommend the American Fossil Quarry and I am looking to make a second trip back this next summer. Below-Mioplosus Below-Phareodus
  19. Hello TFF. I'm considering this Mioplosus, it's nothing special but the teeth are real cool and I figure $60 is a ok deal. I was just wondering if anyone with more green river knowledge than me can spot any enhancements?

    Can use some help with a few IDs

    I've been trying to ID all the little fossils on this plate besides the Mioplosus. So far I see two mollusks, a tiny clam, a possible burrow, and a shrimp. Can someone help me figure out if my observations are correct? Second picture is a close up of the shrimp.

    American Fossil Quarry

    Well I haven't had much time to go fossil hunting since we made an offer on our home. We are moving in on Saturday. I'm so excited. Two weeks ago my wife allowed me to take an excursion for fish fossils in Wyoming with her cousin Luke. Little did the twelve year old boy know what he was getting into. This would be his first fossil hunting experience but he also experienced the following: first off roading experience, first taste of beef jerky, first time to Wyoming, and first time to a Sonic drive through. Being in the middle of Wyoming I diligently followed Google Maps which led us off roadin
