A pair of fish on one small slab.
I believe the ray-finned fish is either Synorichthys sp. or Turseodus sp.
You can see the body of a Diplurus newarki just below the other fish scales.

cool! weird how the ray fin shows up better than the Diplurus

Not surprising though, Jim.

The thick ganoid scales on the paleoniscoid fish was much more durable and more prone to detailed preservation/fossilization than the lobe-finned fish bones were.


very nice finds tim!

Thanks Nick.
