    Knightia Prep

    I’m now prepping what appears to be a Knightia that I received from @RJB. Apparently, this fish came from the diamond layer of the GRF. Here’s what it look ones like to start:
  2. Could anyone PM me somewhere where I could purchase unprepared Green River fish? Thanks in advance

    Green River Coprolite?

    I recently purchased this Green River Knightia plate at an incredibly cheap price. I got it because of what I was pretty sure was some coprolite on the back. I am sure you know more about this stuff than I do- so was I right? Also is that bone infront of the fish? Thanks!

    Fish and Snail

    Acquired two new ones today, nothing heart-stopping but just nice to have (and a change from trilobites). * A 6ish cm Knightia eocaena * A plump, mature Platyceras from Sylvania, Ohio (close to golf ball sized).

  6. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the American Fossil quarry in Kemmerer Wyoming this past week and had an amazing time. @sseth and his business partners do an incredible job running the quarry and made my experience there a memorable one by giving me the opportunity to find some beautiful fossils over the two days I was there. These finds include a nice Mioplosus, a beautiful Phareodus and dozens of Knightia. I highly recommend the American Fossil Quarry and I am looking to make a second trip back this next summer.

    Fish scale?

    I have not the slightest clue what this is. The seller never mentions anything about it. My first guess would be a fish scale but it's quite large. The whole thing is about an inch in diameter. From the green river formation.

    GR fish ID

    Hello! I'm super happy because I just finished my first self-prepared fossil fish! My original thought was Diplomystus, but as I finished the prep job I became suspicious it was a Knightia, possibly K. alta. just wanted to know if anyone could help me with the ID, and any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Green River Fish

    Hey guys!! My UPS box of everything I brought back from my pay-to-dig trip in Wyoming came in today!! Here's what I ended up with fully unboxed. I brought home a bunch of half fish to work on my preparing skills before I tackle the complete ones. The last two big pieces at the end measure 24x18 approx and have 6 or 7 fish on them. I'll take more pictures of them tonight as I un(bubble)wrap them.
  10. Are these fish genuine? Any painting? They are said to be from the Green River Formation.
  11. The Green River Formation is one of the most well-known fossil sites in the world, occupying present-day Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. This Lagerstätte has been noted for its well-preserved fish fossils, as well as numerous invertebrates, plants, and sometimes even reptiles and birds. Green River fossils are Eocene-aged, at 53.5 to 48.5 million years old. Thankfully, not only are Green River fossils attractive, they also remain affordable to the casual collector. Allow me to present my humble collection. Crocodile tooth Borealosuchus sp. Southwest Wyoming

    Juvenile mioplosus?

    Hello. I did a double take when I saw this Knightia alta for sale. I see this fish has a pair of both dorsal and ventral fins. I'm thinking this may actually be a Mioplosus, but it could also be a priscacara but I'm not really sure. Would anyone have any idea what it is? P.S the picture quality is aweful, but it's the only picture the seller has posted.
  13. Hi, the two specimens shown below are said to be from the Green River Formation. I am not sure what species they are and if they are painted. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Tiny little fish

    A nice surprise happened last night as I was putting my best fish finds away from a trip to Sseth's quarry in Kemmerer, Wyoming last summer. I accidentally dropped a nice Knightia and while piking up the broken pieces, this is what was hiding inside!!! Almost didn't see I due to the tiny size. Any thoughts to species??

    A new, distressing sight.

    I've heard of situations like this. This is the first time I've seen it in my feed: https://www.audubon.org/news/paleontology-and-private-fossil-collecting-can-be-odds-hills-wyoming

    Gone' Fishin

    Figured I'd share my current project here. I'm currently testing different sandblasting media and their effect on various matrices since this is a somewhat new application for us at Vaniman. The picture is an almost-finished Green River Fish that's roughly 4" x 2" in size. I will be doing a full-scale article regarding the entire process but wanted to share some of the work with you all for fun. I have a lot more pictures so if you're interested- let me know. It's only letting me upload one (?)
  17. I was looking through some GRF insects that I had, and wondered if anyone had an ID for this one? I am mostly familiar with insects from amber inclusions, so it is a bit different looking at them on rock. Some options I thought of were a species of beetle, caddisfly, or maybe a cicada? Any information would be great!

    Mioplosus eating a Knightia

    I picked up this treasure in Tucson, because I have always wanted one, and had never been able to afford on till then. Species: Mioplosus and Knightia Location: Green River, Wyoming continued....

    Tiny fish ID

    Hey everyone, these are not my photos but ones from a listing on a popular auction site. There isn’t any info given about the fish, other than that they are a pair and weigh 35g. They look to be from the Green River Formation, but I’m not an expert so if you have a different idea, I’m all ears. My main question, however, is if anyone can identify the species? Judging by the coin size, I’m estimating that the size of the slab is about 4cm high and 6-7cm long. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks!

    Air abrasive on GRF Fish?

    I have heard of using an air abrasive for GRF fish, but haven't been able to find any pointers on how to do it. Is this a safe method of matrix removal? I have one slab I am working on now (first try on a fish) and have been thinking of getting some more 18 inch layer fish to prep if I can. I am guessing you would use bicarb versus dolomite. If you do use this method, any pointers on PSI, and overall technique, when to use, when not to use? So far I have just been very sporadically working on it with an Aro. Nathan
  21. Three summers ago myself and my two younger sons were digging in the bottom cap just below the 18 inch layer. We found dozens and dozens of fish! My middle son brought some pieces to camp for me too look at. We camp right there in the quarry. At first look I was not too impressed, but put all the pieces into a box to take home and look at later. I can now see that it may be a really good Phareodus? I cut off a couple of pieces to make it easier to glue onto a piece of cement board and then begin prep. there will be some areas of rock building and one area of rebuilding some actual fish

    Auction Prep Part Deux

    I'm almost caught up on prep jobs (3 going concurrently now) so I figured it's time to start in @RJB's monster fish. Here's how it arrived at my humble abode... Wow, what a fish!!!!! It rests in a 1" thick slab of 18" layer matrix (read hard as concrete) and Ron was nice enough to mount it to a 1/2" cement board... I think I got a hernia lifting it to the prep table. Needless to say, it is rather stable. Now for the prep...
  23. This is a huge announcement I have to make. It has been under wraps for quite a few months now and some of you may recall my damselfly find from the July 2017 Fossil of the Month contest. Well a HUGE thanks is in order for @oilshale for pointing me in the direction of one of his friends to help identify this beautiful specimen. Turns out this is not just a new species, or even genus, but an entirely new FAMILY that will soon be published!!! This damselfly will be labeled as the type specimen (Holotype) for the Family, Genus, AND Species. I donated this
