    Ductor vestenae VOLTA, 1796 Eocene Ypresian Monte Bolca near Verona Italy
  2. A few weeks ago I was looking for a new case for my iPhone. So I browsed around a Chinese internet shop. I came across cases with fossil pictures on the back: Icaronycteris from the Green River Formation, a Seymouria from the Permian, Aipichthys velifer from the Cretaceous of Lebanon, Archaeopteryx from Solnhofen, a fossil turtle (Green River?) and finally a Sparnodus vulgaris from the Eocene of Monte Bolca, Italy. Funny only that this Sparnodus vulgaris seemed so familiar to me! No wonder - the original is in my collection and hangs on the wall in the corridor. The Chinese company searched for some templates in the internet and found them at TFF. They probably downloaded the picture here in the forum. Now I have an IPhone housing with the image of a fish from my own collection. Thomas

  6. Mene rhombea Volta, 1796

  7. From the album Vertebrates

    Sphyraena bolcensis Agassiz, 1844 Eocene Ypresian Monte Bolca near Verona Italy The genus Sphyraena (from Latin: "pike-like") belongs to the order Perciformes. Members of the genus Sphyraena, better known as Barracudas, are elongated fish, pike-like in appearance, with large pointed heads and jaws. The two dorsal fins are widely separated with the anterior fin having five spines, the posterior fin having only one spine and nine soft rays. The posterior dorsal fin is similar in size to the anal fin and is situated above it. Barracudas normally have an under bite with prominent sharp-edged fang-like teeth in sockets. The oldest known barracuda fossil found so far dates to the Eocene period. All members of the genus Sphyraena are voracious predators; they feed upon cephalopods and crustaceans but mainly prey on fishes. Young barracudas can be often seen in small schools. Adult barracudas are considered to be solitary when it comes to hunting. The great barracuda can swim up to 35 mph, yet it can move forward slowly with no apparent effort; thus increasing its stealth. Barracuda are found primarily in tropical and subtropical waters of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans, but certain species such as the Great Barracuda lives in brackish water.
