Diplomystus Dentatus

Diplomystus Dentatus Fish 290mm

£332.00 GBP

A remarkable Diplomystus Dentatus fossil fish measuring 290mm laying upon shale which once formed the bottom of a sub-tropical lagoon. Most all of the skeletal parts remain in place [articulated], a few ribs have been dislodged during the fossilisation process over millions of years whilst also consisting of firmly closed mandibles, well-formed articulated head plates, fully extended dorsal and anal fin and an excellent tail fin. Overall a nice morphologically fossil plate display the natural anatomy of the Dentatus.

The Green River formation was thought to be a substantial freshwater lake or lagoon which suffered from falls of volcanic ash that smothered the lagoon and created an anoxic environment. This is a unique occurrence in the fossil record that helped to preserve this Diplomystus. Eventually transformed into soft calcite, transforming all bones into mineralised deposits within the now limestone shales.

preserved calcite minerals, caused by absorption of localised mineral elements absorbed by the process of osmosis. Encapsulating this calcite skeleton in the Lagerstätte fossil varved lime muds helping to preserve all the finer details of this fine Diplomystus Dentatus.
