This is a beautiful display plate of fossil fish. It is a massive multiple slab of fish from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. This HUGE plate (three feet long!) has one Diplomystus dentatus (far right edge), one Priscacara serrata (upper right), and a handful of Knightia eocaena scattered about the slab. All the fish are easily seen and quite distinct. But the real prize on the plate is the textbook Priscacara. This fish has great bone structure and extremely fine fin detail - especially on the large dorsal fin. And the natural scale pattern is still preserved, which is extremely unusual! The dark-colored fish contrast well with the buff-colored matrix plate. All the fish are natural to the plate and beautifully spaced on the huge, natural-edged matrix block. This is a fabulous "mass mortality" plate of top quality fossil fish, great for display in your home or office (display stand is included for free).

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