Interopercular Head Bone Of Unidentified Fish Species

    With the diversity of sea life found in Florida waters it should come as no surprise that some things found on local beaches defy identification. Such was the case of the 35 mm. item illustrated below that was found at Smyrna Dunes County Park south of Ponce Inlet, Volusia County, Florida and subsequently photographed by Joel Wooster. It was initially believe to be a fish scale but after sharing the images with several naturalists and biologists it was finally identified.
