Amphiplaga brachyptera is one of the rarer fish in the Green River Formation, making up much less than 1% of the total fish population. It's a small fish, this individual is about average size for the species at 2.6" and is a member of the "trout-perch" family. Because of it's rarity it was almost certainly a solitary, not a schooling fish like the more common fish found in the lake.
Both the positive and negative split of this fish are included. They have been mounted on a piece of wood side by side for display but could be easily removed.
