Caption: Fossil fish, Dapedium punctatus (Agassiz), from the lower Jurassic period (172 to 195 million years ago), found in an old canal workings quarry, Barrow-on- Sour, Leicestershire, UK. Note the distended abdomen which indicates possible pregnancy or perhaps parasitism by a Ligula (tapeworm) type organism.
