COMPLETE GARPIKE IN NODULE - CRETACEOUS, BRAZIL.


Belonostomus (Vinctifer) comptoni Agassiz.

Superb 3D complete Garpike in a sandstone nodule. Lovely detail of the skull showing the large eye and the elongated bill of the upper jaw. The scales are unusual in that they are long and thin. All the fins are present. Since the imposition of a total export ban on all Brazilian fossils these beautiful Garpike have now become very difficult to obtain. Only 'old time' specimens from decades ago are still knocking around on the market. A really exceptional display specimen of Museum quality.

Cretaceous, Albian / Cenomanian, Santana Formation.
Chapado do Ararife, Céara Province, N. E. Brazil.

Fish:  46.5 cm. long.



Our Price: £250.00
