Here's a fantastic PDF we should all have. It's called "Annotated checklist of fossil fishes from the Smoky Hill Chalk of the Niobrara Chalk (Upper Cretaceous) of Kansas". Right click and 'save as' (2 meg)

Annotated checklist of fossil fishes from the Smoky Hill Chalk of the Niobrara Chalk (Upper Cretaceous) of Kansas

"The Niobrara Chalk in western Kansas was deposited on the eastern shelf of the Late Cretaceous Western Interior Sea during Coniacian through early Campanian time, hundreds of miles from the nearest land."

Many of the species found there are also the same species found here locally in the Eagle Ford, Austin chalk and Ozan deposits.

Lance,

Thanks for sharing these. They are great for the Texas collector. The articles reference lists are a big benefit to me.
