Recommended Posts

Hello folks, i have found some fish scales on sedimentary rock in the Ecuadorian coast. Could you please help me to figure it out the type of fish?

Hello, and welcome to the Forum. :)

Unfortunately, I cannot find much information about fossil fishes in Ecuador.

Do you know what Formation it was found in?

Regards,

From the same place as your whale vertebrae?

Today i have found more pieces. I am attaching a couple of additional pictures.

Tim... It is true... as you mentioned there is almost no information about fossils in Ecuador :(

Thanks a lot for sharing this information piranha! Im a newbie trying to learn... so, maybe most of this material is new for me ;)

The fossils were found in Santa Elena, some kms southerly to Onzole and Canoa Formation.

I am uploading a map describing the zone where the fossils were found. It seems to be between Progreso and Villingota Formations. About the Miocene epoch.
