Help Identifying Fossil Impression

Recommended Posts


Hello: Would like to know if anyone can help identify the attached fossil image? This fossil impression was collected years ago north of Santa Barbara. The impression measures approx. 10.5 mm long.

Thank you.

These look like fish bits, to me.

Maybe some disarticulated ribs, an operculum, and possible gular plate?

Very interesting. Thank you for taking the time to analyze the pic and label the segments for me.
