Diplomystus double

Product description

Unusual display plate containing an overlaid pair of Diplomystus fish from the Green River Formation, Wyoming, USA. They are from the Eocene, 50 million years ago.
The Green River site produces a large extent of soft tissue preservation, and once upon a time was a warm tropical sea.
Diplomystus is distantly related to modern day herrings, and it was a surface feeder as evidenced by their upturned mouths.
They fed on smaller fish such as the Knightia.
 
An unusual display item with two fish superimposed.
