Hi I'm looking at this Fish Fossil from the web. Anyone know what species is it? It is around 7 inches long and the following are the location details:

Period: Cretaceous - Early Cenomanian
Formation: Santana Formation
Location: Regiao de Ceara, Araripe Basin, Brazil

There are many species of fish from the Santana formation of Brazil. I'm not sure there's enough of diagnostic features to nail down the species, but I'll wait for what the experts say.
