Fossil Fish - Aipichthys velifer

Aipichthys velifer

Item #FS0047

Fossil Fish – Aipichthys velifer

This is a beautifully preserved fossil fish from Haqel, Lebanon, a site that has been known for hundreds of years to have fish in its rocks. Aipichthys velifer is an extinct fish of the order Beryciformes, and is quite a scarce and collectable fish. The fine-grained limestones of Lebanon have beautifully preserved many species of fish, echinoderms and crustaceans from about 100 million years ago. They are very similar in appearance to fish from the Green River Formation in the USA, but considerably older.

This fish has a particularly startled expression, and it is one of the nicest we have had of this species. A lovely addition to a fish or fossil collection!
