  • The gnathostome (jawed vertebrate) crown group comprises two extant clades with contrasting character complements. [...] Key Result A phylogenetic analysis places the new form near the top of the gnathostome stem group but does not fully resolve its relationships to other placoderms. The analysis also assigns all acanthodians to the chondrichthyan stem group. These results suggest that the last common ancestor of Chondrichthyes and Osteichthyes had a macromeric dermal skeleton, and provide a new framework for…Expand Abstract
