Fossil Collector Mural Q130522304
Phareodus was a genus of freshwater fish from the Eocene to the Oligocene of Australia, Europe and North America, with an oval outline, a small head, and a slightly pointed snout. A small schooling fish, Knightia made an abundant food source for larger Eocene predators. Diplomystus is an extinct genus of freshwater clupeomorph fish distantly related to modern-day extant herrings, alewives, and sardines. Quarried from Mosaic Lake and unearthed by hand, this striking mural contains a 13″ Phareodus, 5.5″ Knightia, and 6″ Diplomystus.
