Fossil Fish - Diplomystus dentatus

Diplomystus dentatus

Item #FS0049

Fossil Fish – Diplomystus dentatus

Diplomystus dentatus was one of the most common fish in the Green River Formation, an Eocene geologic formation in the Rocky Mountains. Fish in the formation are found in layers, and were probably preserved as a result of sudden temperature changes from volcanic activity.

Diplomystus dentatus probably fed on Knightia, the most common fish in the formation, and other small fish. It is thought to be distantly related to modern-day herrings, alewifes, and sardines. These limestone fossils vary in color from light brown to almost black.

All of our limestone fossils are carefully selected to show the greatest detail in the body and skeleton of the fish!

Individual shapes and fossils vary but your item will resemble the pictured example.
