This is a beautiful display plate of fossil fish. It is a fabulous pair of fish from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. This large plate (well over two feet across) has two excellent Diplomystus dentatus (the larger one is over EIGHTEEN inches long!) preserved on the slab. Both large fish are easily seen and quite distinct. But the real prize on the plate is the 18.4" specimen. This fish has great bone structure and extremely fine detail preserved - especially on the backbone, fins, and tail. And the fish is over EIGHTEEN inches long, which is an extremely large fossil fish! Both dark-colored fish contrast well with the khaki-colored matrix plate. And both fish are beautifully displayed on the large,squared matrix plate. This is a very impressive fossil fish plate, showcasing two very large, well prepared Diplomystus fish from Wyoming.
