Cretaceous Crustacean (Geryon), Fossil Worm & Fish

 
 
This is a really cool association from the Upper Cretaceous marine deposits of Lebanon. There is a fossil decapod crustacean (Geryon hakelinsis), an undescribed soft bodied worm as well as multiple partial fish on both sides of the rock. The Geryon is 1.2" wide and the worm is 1.3" on 3.8x3.6" matrix.

The Upper Cretaceous, Lebonese lagerstätten yields some of the most exquisitely preserved fossil fish in the world. Over 80 genre are currently described, with many more still awaiting description. These beautiful fossils have been quarried near Byblos, Lebanon for well over a century and include sharks, rays, shrimp, ray-finned fishes and more. The deposits represent a marine deposit, estimated to have been about around 270 meters below the surface.
