Help me with Cretaceous fishes

Recommended Posts

Godofgods

Hi everyone, i'm doing the thesis of master degree in paleontology and I'm studying a new internal lagoon near a carbonate platform. At this moment I can't go to university because we are in quarantine and therefore I can't consult with the professors and can't use various methods. So I ask you for help. Can anyone identify these fish, even just the family they belong to? They are all from the Turonian and they come from a kind of Plattenkalk and represent the only vertebrates found.

Thank you

I am curious as to why you can't ask your professor.  It seems all the profs here are teaching via the internet these days.

 

No, I do not know these fish, sorry.

Hmm, I don't know. Looks like something resembling Leptolepides.   But this fish only exists up to the Aptian and not the Turonian.

Where were these found? Country, county, state, or region?

 

What Formation were they found in?

Could they belong to the family of Clupeidae?
