Dinxiao Village, Fuyuan, Yunnan Province of China
This fish is Asialepidotus, a member of the semionotid fshes. The
genus is better known from deposits in Guizhou Province where it is
seen with the aquatic reptile Keichousaurus . It is not known whether
this one is the same species or not. The white veins of crystal are
natural, and a quite commonly seen in material of this age. Missing
only the distalmost portion of the caudal fin, it is a fine example
of the type from a region rarely affording material such as this.
This is the first and only example from this region that I have been
able to acquire.
