Fish remains?

Recommended Posts

I feel like this is a smattering of disarticulated fish bones, but I'm not positive. The preservation is not amazing so even under magnification I'm not sure if these are bone or not. Found in Pennsylvanian black shale in Illinois. Any thoughts? @RCFossils

I am leaning more towards these being plant fragments but it is difficult to say for sure.

Could be. What does fish material typically look like in these rocks?

My initial thought was fish gill arches.  I’m not sure though.
