Unidentified fish scale from Kem Kem

Recommended Posts

Hello,

On the internet I found and bought this fossil fish scale from the Kem Kem formation. Unfortunately, I do not know which fish she comes from, as she looks different than any other fish scales from Kem Kem that I know. A box on the sheet is 5x5mm, the scale is ca. 1,7cm long.

 

I hope you can help me with that.

Thank you in advance, Jesco

that is rather interesting I feel it might be cf. Bawitius

Without the interrupted arrangement of ganoine, as I saw in classic Bawitius sp. scales, it could it be from Obaichthys sp.
