This is an excellent fossil fish plate. It is a large plate of four fish from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. This fossil was found in the ''18 Inch Layer'', a layer where the fossils have wonderful detail and great dark color. The fossils from this layer need to be extracted under a microscope to reveal all the detail - this is done with an air scribe and air abrasive. This very large plate (almost 2' X 3'!) has very nice detail preserved. The most distinct fish on the plate is a fabulous Priscacara liops - the backbone, ribs, fins, and tail are all intact and very easily seen. There are also two large Knightia alta fish and a nice Diplomystus dentatus (center) preserved on the plate. And, best of all, the fossil has been professionally framed for optimal display. This is a very large, aesthetic multiple fish fossil with four fish of three different species on one display plate.

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