Beautiful Mioplosus labracoides fish. This is one of the less common fishes of the Green River Formation and the specimen is rather large for species. The limestone slab is backed with plywood to avoid damages during shipment and beyond. A small restoration along a glued crack can be noticed. The fine details of the teeth, scales, fins and vertebrae are very beautiful.
