The early Eocene Fossil-Lagerstätte of Monte Bolca (northern
Italy) is renowned worldwide for its extraordinarily well-preserved
fossil biota containg more than 500 species of terrestrial and marine
vertebrates, invertebrates, molluscs, plants, crustaceans, jellyfishs
and a huge quantity of fish.
In this reconstruction, between other creatures are illustrated two specimens of the Angel fish (Eoplatax papilio), a Moon Fish (Mene rhombea), and a shark.
