Fossil Fish Mural
Knightia eocaena, Diplomystus dentatus
Early Eocene, Fossil Butte Member
Green River Formation, Wyoming
Featuring both Knightia and Diplomystus fossil fish in a mass mortality group, numerous specimens form an aesthetically pleasing natural composition. The quality and articulation of each fish is exceptional. This mural represents one of the finest plates of fossil fish recovered from the layer known as the gastropod layer, a near shoreline sedimentation that rarely produces such fine specimens. Fitted with a metal cleat system for wall display.
