Here’s some more upper Devonian fish parts from The shore of Lake Erie. Mostly black Cashaqua and Rhinestreet shale found at Sturgeon Point area. An actinoptergyian skull roof , possible Sarcopterygian caudal fin, placoderm bone fragment, a fish skull piece and jaw (unidentified)

That skull! I don't know if its weird but I just love the shapes of the skulls of these fish, and the patterns present on them too.

The other finds are awesome as well

Yeah something about the finger print patterning that’s really cool!

Yeah, first skull roof is an actinoptergyian

Oh ok, I have never seen that kind of abbreviation.

 

Can I ask what features lead you to say that? I am very interested in Devonian fishes and would love to learn this kind of stuff.

Very nice, especially the actinopt skull roofs

Oh?! I guess I was comparing it to the wrong fish! It’s been tough to find info on found species from NY. So just been searching for any pics I can to figure it out. The closest skull shape I could find was that of a selenostied placoderm. Do you have any good suggestions for reference? I’d really like to ID everything correctly. (Of course!)
