Real nice Paleocene Wrasse mouth plate from the Aquia Formation of Maryland. I ran into Mel H. on the beach and we discussed fish mouth plates and I remarked that I hadn't found a Wrasse in a long while. About 1 hour latter I found this one. I should have also remarked that I hadn't found a 3" Otodus in a long while.

I believe this Miocene fish mouth plate is from a wrasse. Shame I damaged it
