Frasnian Dunkleosteus armor plate.

We recently moved to a new house, so It has been quite a busy few weeks since we last made a field trip.

So I hadn’t much time to post the recent finds.

On our last fieldtrip to the Belgian Late Devonian I made an exceptional find that I still wanted to share:

I found a large piece of bone sticking out of a nodule. After the preparation and a some research I ‘suspected that the piece was a ADL (anterior dorsal lateral) armor plate from a Dunkleosteus. I’ve sent the pictures to a friend Palaeontologist specialised in Palaeozoic fish who confirmed the ID.

 

Dunkleosteus sp. (ADL)
