  1. 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
  2. Whole Cretalamna fossil?

    I am currently researching Cretalamna for a written article. When searching for images, I came across this peculiar one that I find interesting. No information on this image seems to exist, whoever submitted this photo did not add any sort of description, other than the shark was identified as "Cretolamna sp." However, I feel too curious to not scrutinize this photo. In my attempt to scrutinize the details of this photo, I've concluded a few things. Firstly, it is likely that the fossil came from Lebanon, possibly Cenomanian lagerstattes in Hgula or similar localities, based on the color of the rock and the presence of a possible Diplomystus birdi and generic crustaceans (which are commonly found in the areas. I don't have much of a clue for the fish directly above the shark). Second, it would be difficult to make a solid conclusion as it appears that no teeth are present in the shark fossil (and Cretalamna diagnostics are almost entirely reliant on teeth). Third, some of the parts of the shark fossil, especially the tail portion (marked by a line directly behind the second dorsal fin) may have been artificially reconstructed during prepping. I'm super curious as to what an expert in this forum would say about this fossil.
  3. Baby Enchodus marchesettii?

    Greetings! I have in my collection what I believe to be a baby Enchodus marchesettii from Lebanon. The fish is about an inch long and bears a close resplendence to my adult Enchodus. I was wondering if anyone else here has a confirmed baby Enchodus and could send some pictures so I could compare! I'll hopefully get around to posting a picture of it soon!

  8. I saw this lebanon fish fossil (maybe Aipichtys sp?) On website, and i planning to buy this but i'm worried its head has made by man. its head looks little weired and unnatural. I never saw fish heads looks like this. Anyone knows about its right id or why it is fake?(or why it is natural one) Thanks. Sorry for bad quality pictures...

  10. I was just going through a box of fossils that been sittin here in my office for awhile now. Besides lots of other cool stuff I ran into this little beauty. Diplomystus poweri from Hajoula lebanon and Cretaceous in age. I bought this about 20 years ago. I think its real? I only have my readers on at the moment and parts of the head look a bit fishy? No pun intended. RB
  11. I was thinkin af buying some fish from lebanon and all I could find on the internet were fish already prepped and all in America or the UK. How does one find fossil fish of Lebanon from he source? RB
  12. Lebanon Slipper Lobster

    A fossil of a slipper lobster covered in dendrites associated with a shrimp and a fish (Gaudryella gaudryi). One can see that it is a slipper lobster due to the flattened antennas (antennules) found above the carapace. For this reason, slipper lobster are actually more related to the spiny lobsters and furry lobsters, with all three being in the infraorder Achelata. This specimen looks most similar to the recently described species of slipper lobster called Paracancrinos libanensis (Haug) due to its rectangular shape, however I am not sure if it should be labeled as such due to it being much less stocky than P. libanensis and it appearing narrower and longer. The carapace also seems longer in proportion to the abdomen than as described to be in P. libanensis. The antennules (the flattened claw like element) are petaloid in this specimen just like in P. libanensis, however this specimen has much rounder and shorter antennules than P. libanensis. This specimen does not appear to be the seemingly only other described slipper lobsters that I know of in Cretaceous Lebanon, Charbelicaris maronites (Haug), Palibacus praecursor (Dames 1886) and Acanthophoenicides peterpani (Denis) as those three are much more stockier and rounder in appearance, those three species seem to seemingly be more superficially be similiar to modern day slipper lobster. This specimen may just be a variation of P. libanensis, I'd be glad to hear your opinion on the matter. Citations Dames, W.

  13. Lebanon Shrimp or Lobster?

    This was labeled to be a Carpopenaeus sp. shrimp from Lebanon. I had a sneaking suspicion that it may not actually be a shrimp, but perhaps a lobster because of what appears to be claws so I purchased it. I was looking for second opinions on this fossil and will try to update with a closer look when it comes in (shipping is overseas and will take a while though).
  14. Hakel Fish Info?

    Does anyone have a good resource about Lebanese fish fossils from Hakel? I have some I would like to learn more about. Looking for images and citations to beef up my catalog info on them. Thanks in advance all!
  15. Is it the same Lebanon fish?

    Hello, could you tell me if the two fish, I suppose Lebanon needle fish are the same species and the exactly name of them? In lenght are about 15 cm (first picture) and 8 cm (second picture) Many thanks in advance...

  21. Hi all, a friend recently offered an interesting fossil to me - an octopus from Lebanon. Now, as some of you might know - Lebanon does have octopus fossils, though they are very rare. This fella here doesn't look outright fake at first glance, but I don't know if he's real either. I don't know many Lebanese experts, but when I showed it to two, here's what I was told. Expert A - It's real, but the tentacles are painted Expert B - It's just a squid painted to look like an octopus Now, painted tentacles is annoying, but at least it would be a real octopus. But a squid painted to look like one is a big no-no. What are your thoughts on this guy?
  22. Hi all, I just acquired several Lebanese fossils that are very chalky. The fossils themselves are even slightly covered in a fine white dust. They also feel as though they could easily be damaged. Does anyone have any tips for cleaning of Lebanese fossils? Can I rinse them lightly with water? Should I also use a sealant on them? Thank you.
