Specimen SSA640

This is a top quality fossil association plate. It is a large slab of fossil fish, shrimp, and other fossils from the Cretaceous sublithographic limestone layers of Hajoula, Lebanon. Political unrest in Lebanon has made fossil collecting difficult, and very few nice specimens have been found in the past few years. There are EIGHT fossil fish (SIX are complete), FOURTEEN Carpopenaeus callirostris Shrimp, and other fossils preserved on the plate. The three large fish are Armigatus brevissimus, a classic fossil fish from this locality. All of the fossils on the plate have exquisite detail preserved - the fins and tails of the fish are easily seen, and the shrimp even display the legs and antennae...WOW! The amazing fossils are beautifully showcased on the large, natural matrix plate - what a display piece! This is a very exciting find, probably the most unique association plate we have ever had from Lebanon.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
