  • The classic Devonian fossil fish site at Tynet Burn, Fochabers, NE Scotland has been investigated following recent excavations. The fish assemblage consists of placoderms, acanthodians, an actinopterygian, porolepiforms, osteolepiforms and a dipnoan. The assemblage is typical of the 'Achanarras Fauna' of Eifelian age which is widespread in the Orcadian basin, representing a time of generally high lake levels. The most diverse fauna occurs in the Upper Nodule Bed which can be divided into top… CONTINUE READING
