23.7" Permian Amphibians And Fish Plate - Pfalz, Germany

 
 
 
This is an incredible fossil amphibian (Sclerocephalus) and fish (Paramblypterus) plate. It is two Sclerocephalus, the larger 7.6" and the smaller 6.3" and a Paramblypterus, 8.6". These are wonderfully preserved. Areas of skin, legs, and hands/feet can be clearly seen. The shale it is preserved on measures 23.7" x 16.8" and has been backed with fiberglass for stability. There are repaired cracks in the shale.

The fossil beds of Pfalz in southwestern Germany have yielded many spectacular Permian fossils for many years, but this location has been closed to collecting for decades - making such specimens increasingly rare on the market. The Rotliegendes series of mud and siltstones is renowned for its abundant fish and amphibian fossils and this stunning assemblage is a perfect representation of aquatic life that thrived in the area 285 million years ago.
