          The fossil is 11.2 cm. (4.4 inches) in length. It was found in the Green River Formation at Fossil Lake in Wyoming. This fossil dates to the Wasatchian stage (55.4 - 50.3 million years ago) of the Eocene.

          Amphiplaga brachyptera was a fish of the Eocene. The systematic paleontology of it is:

      Actinopterygii Cope 1882
      Neopterygii Regan 1923
      Teleostei Muller 1846
      Paracanthopterygii Greenwood et al. 1996
      Perciformes Bleeker 1859
      Percopsidae Regan 1911
      Amphiplaga Cope 1877
      Amphiplaga brachyptera Cope 1877

          Alison M. Murray and Mark V.H. Wilson wrote an article titled Contributions of fossils to the phylogenetic relationships of the percopsiform fishes (Teleostei: Paracanthopterygii): order restored. It was published in 1999. The abstract and the introduction are on this link.
