CatRemarks:
This specimen was listed in the original paper catalogue as M.76.05.06, Unidentified Material. During examination of the specimen during entry into this digital database, the cataloguer noticed that the specimen was still preserved within it's original shale and jarosite matrix and the general shape of fish vertebrae. The cataloguer then partially prepared the specimen using an air scribe to free the fossil of its shale matrix. Upon preparation, the fossil was then positively identified by the Curator as vertebrae belonging to the fish Xiphactinus audax, and the new specimen number was issued.
