A very nice, uncurled example of this acanthodian. Looks good as it is, but a little prep’ to the skull and the tail would reveal it totally.
Very unusual to see this species in its correct shape, and this specimen benefits from showing all the spines. A good addition to the collection.
Specimen measures 140mm in length, before any prep’.
Sandwick fish beds, Orkney.
