A New Fossil Fish
(by Jack Saxon)

Cornovichthys blaauweni was discovered at Achanarras Quarry in 1999 by a group from Aberdeen University.  It is about 150mm in length and is preserved as a shadowy image with some darker markings. These are interpreted as an eye and some 15 branchial chambers.  The reconstruction is shown below.
