Fish for ID

Fossil fish for a friend, no locality. Any ideas? I was thinking asineops.

What's the size on this, Mason?

 

Looks like a Phaerodus/Cockerelites to me, but hard to say with the head and tail and most fins missing.

About 6 inches, it does have some blow up problems. Other people tried IDing it and weren’t sure it was from the green river, though it looks mighty like one to me.

I have a feeling this is either Mioplosus or Priscacara.

The scales are too big.

Not Pharaeodus. The pictured fossil is an acanthomorph. Asineops maybe?

Big circular scales are what lead me to asineops, as I know they have big circle ones.
