An incomplete chimaeroid (Holocephali, Chimaeroidei) mandibular dental plate from the early Bajocian (Humphriesianum Zone) of Ottange-Rumelange, on the Luxembourg-French border, is described as a new genus and species of callorhinchid fish Ottangodus lotharingiae gen. et sp. nov. Comparison of the described plate with other Jurassic chimaeriform fish (both myricanthid and chimaeroid) mandibular plates shows relationships with callorhinchids and in turn close relationships with the genus…

Refining the marine reptile turnover at the Early–Middle Jurassic transition
A series of ichthyosaurian and plesiosaurian specimens from successive geological formations in Luxembourg and Belgium are described that detail the evolution of marine reptile assemblages across the Early–Middle Jurassic transition within a single area, the Belgo–Luxembourgian sub-basin.

There is found to be strong evidence that the chimaeroids are derived, through the Jurassic myriacanthids and allied forms, from a Palaeozoic group which includes the Permian Menaspis and whose most primitive known genus is Deltoptychius.
Late Albian chimaeroid fishes (Holocephali, Chimaeroidei) from Annopol, Poland
Abstract Remains of Late Albian chimaeroid fishes (Holocephali, Chimaeroidei) are described from the mid-Cretaceous condensed succession of the Annopol anticline, Poland. The described material
Development and growth of compound tooth plates in Callorhinchus milii (chondrichthyes, holocephali)
Comparison with the tooth plates of Chimaera monstrosa indicates that compound tooth plates may be a feature of all chimaeroids in which a descending lamina is present, and provides further evidence to support a lyodont dentition in chimeraeroid fishes similar to that found in other chondrichthyans.
A Late Triassic chimaeroid egg capsule from New Zealand: early evidence of chimaeroid reproductive mode from the eastern margin of Gondwana
A Late Triassic chimaeroid egg capsule from the South Island of New Zealand is described as Chimaerotheca reperepe, a new ichnospecies. The fossil egg capsule is preserved as a positive impression on
Interpretation of the toothplates of chimaeroid fishes
It has been argued that the toothplates of chimaeroid fishes exhibit a mode of growth that is fundamentally different from that of other chondrichthyans. Chimaeroid toothplates are supposed to be

Environmental controls on the distribution of neoselachian sharks and rays within the British Bathonian (Middle Jurassic).
Extensive sampling from a range of facies within the Bathonian (Middle Jurassic) of southern England has allowed the palaeoenvironmental distribution of a number of taxa of neoselachian sharks and
Neoselachian sharks and rays from the British Bathonian (Middle Jurassic)
Extensive sampling of Bathonian sediments from localities across southern and central England has produced over 8000 neoselachian teeth, with over 25 species being represented in total, most of them previously undescribed.
