Lebanon shrimp - Carpopenaeus?


Wrangellian

Recommended Posts

I seem to have lost my label for this one, but if I recall it was a Carpopenaeus (callirostris?) from Haqel, Lebanon - Cenomanian. Can anyone confirm this for me? I'm pretty sure it was from Lebanon, in any case. If any other info can be filled in also, let me know, please.

Maybe my label will turn up somewhere, sometime... I know I would not have thrown such a thing out.

Yes, this looks like typical Lebanese Cenomanian preservation and I think your ID is correct.

Not sure about the locality in Lebanon, I think there are a couple of places.

Hakel, or Haqel is probably the most famous locality for these shrimp. But Tidgy's Dad is correct, there are a number of different fish localities in Lebanon that produce these.

You mean other localities besides Haqel? Are they all in the Haqel vicinity, or widely scattered? I should look for a map...
