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 (over three feet across!) has two large Diplomystus dentatus (the larger one is over fifteen inches long!) and SIXTY-THREE baby fish scattered about the slab. All the fish are easily seen and quite distinct. But the real prize on the plate is the 15.4" Diplomystus. This fish has great bone structure and extremely fine detail preserved - especially on the backbone, fins, and tail. And the fish is over FIFTEEN inches long, which is extremely unusual! The dark-colored fish contrast well with the buff-colored matrix plate. All the fish are beautifully displayed on the huge, natural-edged matrix block. This is a fabulous fossil fish plate, with a "mass mortality" of 63 babies and a HUGE, top quality fossil fish all on the same plate!

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