Green River Formation
In terms of the numerous varieties of fossil fish represented in the venerable Green River Formation, the Phareodus is not seen nearly as commonly as so many of the other types from the prolific Lagerstätte in Wyoming. The monster fossil fish has lots of pointed teeth testifying to its predatory lifestyle. This nicer example has good size and solid preservation, but the bonus feature is the presence of a forward facing pectoral fin which is not typically preserved in such a way as to be visible. The rich dark brown fossil fish has a raised vertebral column and elegant splayed fins, but it is this unique "bowtie" fin that gives this a whole new dimension. The matrix is typical for the locality with notable variance of colors and layering.
