Cockerellites (Priscacara) liops - RARE 4 SPINES

674.95 899.95

As many of you may know, Green River Fishing is what I do best! This fantastic, unique specimen comes from a private 18” layer quarry just across from the Fossil Butte National Monument Boundaries.

All of the fossil fish that I post for sale are 100% original unless posted otherwise (I’ll make it obvious!), meaning NO restoration, NO paint, and NO repairs.

This particular specimen has 4 anal spines, compared to the usual 3 spines, and there is much debate as to whether or not this is a new species or simply a unique deformation. These fish are hard to come by, and you will probably not see another from me for a while as they usually end up in my personal collection! I have sold similar 4 spine specimens for upwards of $1,000 this is a special deal to celebrate the opening of my new store, Moments In Stone!

The Green River Formation of Southwestern Wyoming is probably one of the most famous fossil sites in the world. Known for it’s exceptional preservation and diversity of species, the Green River Formation should be on every fossil lover’s bucket list!

Eocene - Wyoming, U.S.A. - 52 million years old

The size of the matrix is approximately 12” x 10” x 0.5” the fish itself measures approximately: 4.675” (About average for this species!)
