Top Quality Ceratodus Tooth Plate - Extinct Lungfish

 
This is an exceptionally well preserved tooth plate from the extinct lobe-finned lungfish, Ceratodus. It's Lower Cretaceous in age and comes from the Kem Kem Basin region of Morocco. You can see many fine microscopic details in the tooth which are lost in lesser quality specimens.

The closest living relative of Ceratodus is the Queensland lungfish (Neoceratodus forsteri), of North-eastern Australia, which is considered a ‘living fossil’.
