This is not at all new, but I enjoyed reading through it and thought I'd share.

News reports of fossils such as get shared here are always about the interesting fossils. The ones that are atypically well preserved, or that represent something completely new, or that transform our understanding.

In an attempt to redress the balance, I give you the Grant Museum of Zoology's blog series (sadly no longer updated): Underwhelming Fish Fossil of the Month!, focusing especially on the poorly preserved, fragmentary and uninformative fossils that fill museum drawers and which no one ever sees.
