I see a large number of posts where the poster asks for id help with a fish vertebra. Most times a lot of information is given, but unfortunately not all of it is correct. There are bits and pieces of fish vertebrae id information in a number of books, papers, articles, websites etc. but nothing that I’ve seen that I would consider to be comprehensive. The below paper is a rather obscure one but which I’ve found extremely helpful with the id of extant shark vertebrae which also helps with the fossil ones: A Guide to Identifying Shark Centra from Southeastern Archaeological Sites Kozuch and Fitzgerald 1989 https://www.academia.edu/5653950/A_Guide_to_Identifying_Shark_Centra_from_Southeastern_Archaeological_Sites_Kozuch_and_Fitzgerald_1989?auto=download I have thousands of shark, ray, sawfish, and bony fish vertebrae but unfortunately I just don’t have the time to take pictures of them. I see all kinds of generalizations about the differences between these types of vertebrae that get included in fish vertebra id post replies that are just not universally true based upon my personal readings and collection. Below are a few generalizations from the above paper: If you are aware of other papers, articles, websites etc. that would help TFF members better understand these vertebrae could you please add links to them in replies to this post?

Does anyone know of any papers that refer to the species Morocconites malloides? More specifically I am interested to know what formation it comes from in Morocco. I read the paper by Edgecombe: Edgecombe, G.D. (1991). Morocconites Struve, 1989, a Devonian Acastine Trilobite (Calmoniidae: Acastinae). American Museum Novitates, Number 2998 ...but it does not go into detail as to the layer in which they are found. Thanks for the help! Dave
