Lycoptera fish that lived from the late Jurassic to Cretaceous periods 125-135 Million years old

Lycoptera species were small freshwater fish. Most species fed on plankton and had numerous tiny teeth. These Many specimens preserve minute details and impressions of soft tissues. Lycoptera was covered in tiny oval scales about 1.2 millimeters across, and, in life, would have had a superficial resemblance to the Common Minnow

Lycoptera fossils are commonly found in large groups, buried together quickly in fine lake sediments. This probably indicates that they were gregarious in life, congregating in shoals.
