Fossil Fish fry

Sometimes fossil finds are especially unexpected. This fish was discovered in a storage unit. It looks like it might be in a concretion rather than split from limestone. Does anyone recognize the type of fish?

    It looks like the type of fish fossil from Kemmerer, WYO!? There are several fish fossil quarries there.
