Armigatus is an extinct genus of clupeomorph fishes belonging to the order Ellimmichthyiformes. These fishes lived in the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian / Turonian, about 95-90 million years ago); their fossil remains have been found in the Middle East and North Africa.
The Cretaceous limestone deposits of Lebanon is rich with an amazing diversity of fauna. Fossils from these deposits easily rival those from Solnhofen in Germany and share with Solnhofen the phenomenon of fossils often being the same color as the limestone matrix. The limestone deposits of Sahel Alma, Hajoula and Haqel, Lebanon date to the Cenomanian Stage of the Middle Cretaceous, some 100 million years ago, and are most famous for exquisitely fossil fish preservation, but also produces a diversity of other well-preserved invertebrate fossils such as shrimp and lobsters.
