Recommended Posts

Hello,
a nice discovery today, this 4 cm stingray barb found in zanclean from the South of France
This is the first time I have found this kind of fossil.
Is it possible to determine the exact name of the animal?
Thanks in advance

I don't have the answer but it's a nice find and just thought a refresh on this post might yield an answer. :)

Probably not. I’ve looked at caudal stingers of modern Dasyatis, Gymnura, and Rhinoptera. They look very similar to each other.
