On this plate is 1 very rare Actinodon sp. - Labyrinthodontia amphibian, comparable with a Sclerocephalusaus of the family of the Temnospondyli.
The Actinodon clearly distinguishes itself from the much more common Sclerocephalus (Stegocephalia) through its longer, pointy skull.
Age: approx. 290 million years
Discovery site: Odernheim, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
The plate size: 50 x 70 x 90 mm
Fossil: 40 mm
The excavation site has not been accessible for many years and excavations are absolutely prohibited there. The piece comes from an old collection.
The ossified skull with the eye sockets and the spine as well as the skin shades have remained beautifully preserved.
Also, the small teeth in the jaw area.
The earliest “Labyrinthodontia” include vertebrates that were, at least temporarily, able to inhabit dry land.
This piece was found in the limestone bank of Odernheim middle horizon, known for its beautiful, perfectly preserved fossils from the Permian.
