For now I believe this is preopercular to a sarcopterygian; maybe a lungfish like Sagenodus. This is from the Early Permian, Wichita Group, Nocona formation. Northwest Texas. Collected Feb 2016. Any ideas anyone…? Attachments:You must be logged in to view attached files. November 14, 2016 at 3:04 pm #15717 Eleanor GardnerModerator Neat find, @adam-armstrong! I’m no good with fishes. Do you have any guesses, @rleder?

Can you shoot and upload some ? Best Ronny November 17, 2016 at 12:42 am #15817 Adam ArmstrongParticipant @rleder – Here is a pic of the inside of the skull section. The piece is around 30mm and lighting was terrible. sorry Attachments:You must be logged in to view attached files.

Perhaps @vperez can take a crack in the meantime? Author Posts Viewing 5 posts - 1 through 5 (of 5 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
