Fossil Site: Lebanese Lagerstatt, Haqel, Lebanon

Exotic fossil fish is Aipichthys velifer a member of the Order Beryciformes, Family Dinopterigidae. Aipichthys is believed to have been a predator of smaller fish. The genus died out during the Upper Cretaceous, leaving no descendants. There is also a fossil shrimp known as Carpopenaeus septemspinatus, a name derived from its seven rostral spines. Finally, there are a pair of negatives of the starfish Geocoma libanotica. Thus the plate shows a small diversity of the shallow-water Cretaceous ecosystem of what was to become Lebanon some 95 million years later.
