Die Schuppen zeigen die durch Melanin erzeugten Zeichnungsmuster in Originalfärbung. Ebenso sind Muskeln und Teile des Verdauungstraktes zu erkennen. Dies ist eines der weltweit am besten erhaltenen Fischfossilien. Fotografiert während einer Sonderausstellung im Staatlichen Museum für Naturkunde Karlsruhe (49°0′26.63″N 8°24′0.32″E / 49.0073972°N 8.4000889°E / 49.0073972; 8.4000889)
