Hi, any idea what kind of fish this is?  It’s from Xingyi of Guizhou, China.

It's one that would look real nice in my display case.

That fish looks almost identical to this Paramblypterus vratsalviensis from the Czech Republic, but it might be a different species. I suspect restoration done on the lower portion starting directly below the dorsal fin, as well as the fin itself.

However as far as I know, Paramblypterus is only found in parts of Europe especially in Germany, Czech, and France. But the matrix in your fish really looks similar to matrix from Odernheim, Germany, which has many examples of Paramblypterus have been found in. 

 

Just a guess and I obviously might be completely wrong, so I'd wait for others so give out their opinions. Nice fish though, and I'd also agree with caldigger on it looking real nice if put in a display case.
