This is a fabulous example of a rare fossil. It is a museum quality Stingray specimen from Lincoln County, Wyoming. This is a female Heliobatis radians, one of the most sought-after fossils found in the Green River Formation. The Ray has great color, which contrasts beautifully with the buff-colored matrix. The fossil has excellent detail - the barbs along the tail and the long ''stingers'' are even intact and well preserved!  The detail of the head and flukes is simply amazing, and the entire backbone is intact and quite 3-dimensional. This distinct Ray is wonderfully showcased on the large, free-form matrix plate that also includes two fish - a large Diplomystus dentatus and a superb Knightia eocaena! This is a beautiful example of this extremely rare stingray fossil that can not only be part of a fossil collection, but also proudly displayed in your home or office.

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