  1. Fish Fossil (Knightia) Structure ID

    Can anyone identify these structures protruding from the top and bottom of the fish?
  2. Hello, I hardly know anything about fossil identification but was given these fossils a while back and thought I ought to know what they actually are. They look fairly common and from research, they look most like an ammonite and a fish fossil maybe but I'm not sure. Any help would be much appreciated and pictures of both fossils are attached. Thanks, Harry
  3. Miocene find from Turkey

  4. Hi Fossil and rock hounds, I found this strange looking piece when looking through my shark teeth. Found it on Manasota Key beach, Florida. I thought it was some vertebrae bone but than I saw 2 barnacles in what might be a grouping of shells. It also has pockets of limestone and small black bones or rocks cemented in some of the pockets and has some weight to it. It is about 2x2". Posted 5 photos of different angles. Has anybody ever seen anything like this? What is it? Thanks All.
  5. Fish Fossil Manasota Key?

    Hi Fossil Finders, I found this on the beach at Manasota Key, Florida along with whale bones and sharks teeth. Front and back photo below. I looked in my book at it looks similar to the pufferfish or porcupine fish mouth plate. Would you agree? Thanks in advance!
  6. Latest acquisition - fossil capelin

    From the album Fossildude's Purchased/Gift Fossils

    Fossil fish nodule from the Lower Pleistocene of South West Greenland. Mallotus villosus.
  7. Hello. Good morning to all my friends from my favorite super forum! Yesterday I had to break my little piggy bank and from this piggy bank I was able to get my last US $29,99 to get this little gem of nature. I know TFF does not allow valuations, but only what I would like to ask is whether it is real? And whether it was a good purchase? It is a fish of the species Triplomystus sp. The seller's description: This fish is found in sublithographic limestone similar to that seen in Lebanese Lagerstatte (where the genus Triplomystus is also found. Fish from this Moroccan have become available only in recent years, and many may be new to science. The fish is known as Triplomystus, a member of the Paraclupeidae family that were described from Lebanon. Class Actinopterygii, Order Ellemmichthyformes, Family Paraclupeidae Geological Time: Late Cretaceous Size: Fish fossil is 4,7 cm Fossil Site: Ramlia Taouz, Morocco All opinions are welcome! Thank you!
  8. This fish fossil is said to be an Asialepidotus from Liaoning, China. It is pretty well preserved. I wonder if it is a genuine one. It is 30cm in size for the fish.
  9. KNIGHTIA EOCEANA fossil.JPG

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Green River Formation, Rock Springs Region, Wyoming, USA Data: Knightia is an extinct genus of clupeid clupeiform bony fish that lived in the fresh water lakes and rivers of North America and Asia during the Eocene epoch. The genus was erected by David Starr Jordan in 1907, in honor of the late University of Wyoming professor Wilbur Clinton Knight, "an indefatigable student of the paleontology of the Rocky Mountains." It is the state fossil of Wyoming,and the most commonly excavated fossil fish in the world. In Knightia fish, rows of dorsal and ventral scutes run from the back of the head to the medial fins. They had heavy scales, and small conical teeth. Their size varied by species: Knightia eocaena was the longest, growing up to 25 centimeters (10 inches), though most specimens are no larger than 15 centimeters. TIME PERIOD: Eocene Epoch - Approximately 55 Million Years Old. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Actinopterygii Order: Clupeidae Family: Pellonulinae Genus: †Knightia Species: †Eoceana
  10. Fish Fossil ID

    I came across this fossil at an estate cleanout. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks!
  11. I am taking a risk that some unprincipled Forum member will try and snatch this purchase from me. However, I thought the educational benefit of my evaluation system would outweigh that possibility. This beauty is currently available for sale via an Internet auction site. It is labeled as a "Rare Synanceia verrucosa (sic) Stone Fossil Fish Skeleton" Here are the reasons I am poised to spring for the $49.95 (free shipping) price. It's RARE. The seller says so right there in the offer. That makes the price a bargain. I know it's really rare, 'cause I've never seen anything like it. The seller provides the SCIENTIFIC NAME. That alone proves that the seller is a well informed individual, probably a scientist themselves. The seller has a 99.6% positive rating!!! The geological age is given as "unknown." This is additional proof of the items authenticity. A fraudulent seller would simply provide a fiction for age. Look at the robust preservation of the bone! Even from a photo one can see it's exquisitely preserved. No cracks or breaks are visible. Obviously there is no repair. The prep looks wonderful. The bone has been expertly freed from the surrounding matrix with no obscuring matrix left in place. You will note that the bone is preserved in 3D proving that this is no "painted on" forgery. I could go on and on with my scientific evaluative techniques. However, this should be sufficiently instructive to inform Forum members of some simple reasoning tools to assure avoidance of acquiring spurious fossil material. No need to thank me, gotta run and get that bid in.....
  12. First I apologist if my English grammar has problems because I'm not native. I found a fossil which looks very much like a fish fossil. I want to make sure if this is a real fossil of a fish or not. It might be a fossil that even had the meat become the fossil.
  13. On ebay there are several fossils of something the sellers call "wolf fin fish": Are these real fossils? To me it looks like totally real fish. But it looks like all or most of the bones are gone? Is this normal in some fish fossils? Could it be just the impression of real fish (bones) in something that looks like stone - some sort of sement that is man made?

  16. Rock Or Fossil?

    On lake Michigan, we found two "fish like" rocks. Can anyone explain or id these for us, thanks!
  17. From what I know, Chinese has banned export of fossils found in China ever since 2002. But I have heard of some people saying that Lycoptera is an exception since they find so much of it in China. Is this true? Thx
