Pharmacichthys sp.

The genus derives its name from the belief of the scientist that described it that it might possess poison in the tall first dorsal spine. There is, however, no way of verifying that to be the case as the genus died out in the Upper Cretaceous some 70 million years ago. Fish is 4.5 cm long and is from Haqel, Lebanon.
