Antiarchi (Pisces, Placodermi) from the Devonian of central and southern European Russia (Central Devonian Field) are studied. Antiarchs belong to three families, the Asterolepididae, Remigolepididae (suborder Asterolepidoidei), and Bothriolepididae (suborder Bothriolepidoidei). The diagnoses of the order, two suborders, three families, and five genera (two of which are new) are given. Sixteen species, including one new, are described; ten taxa are determined in open nomenclature. Morphological… 

Middle-late devonian placoderms (Pisces: Antiarchi) from Central and northern Asia

Antiarch placoderms (Pisces, Placodermi, Antiarchi) from the Middle-Upper Devonian of Central and northern Asia (Asian part of the former Soviet Union) are described. Available antiarch specimens

Middle Devonian bothriolepiform antiarchs (Pisces, Placodermi) from central Kazakhstan and their implication for the antiarch system and phylogeny

The bothriolepiform antiarchs Tenizolepis asiatica, kassini Malinovskaja, 1988, and B. babicheviMalinovskaya, 1992 from the Givetian of Central Kazakhstan are redescribed.

Bothriolepiform antiarchs (Pisces, Placodermi) from the devonian of Central Kazakhstan

As type collections of bothriolepiform antiarchs of Central Kazakhstan were revised, the diagnoses were emended and the postcranial exoskeleton was reconstructed and a new family, Tubalepididae fam.

Late Devonian Bothriolepidids (Placodermi, Antiarchi) of the Tver Oblast

Abstract The species Livnolepis heckeri (Lukševičs, 2001) which had been assigned to the genus Bothriolepis at first description, was described from the Famennian sediments (Upper Devonian) of the

Bryozoans and Brachiopods from the Famennian (Upper Devonian) of the Central Russian Platform

Abstract —In Lipetsk and Orel oblasts the sediments of the Zadonsk Regional horizon (Lower Famennian, Upper Devonian) have yielded two species of trepostome bryozoans (Leptotrypa lipovkiensis sp.

A new assessment of the Late Devonian antiarchan fish Bothriolepis leptocheira from South Timan (Russia) and the biotic crisis near the Frasnian–Famennian boundary

The species of the Late Devonian, earliest Famennian placoderm fish Bothriolepis jeremejevi has been downranked to subspecies Bothriolepis leptocheira jeremejevi comb. nov. in a result of detailed

A new species of psammosteiform heterostracan (Agnatha) from the Givetian (Middle Devonian) of the Voronezh Region

A new pycnosteid species, Schizosteus shkurlatensis sp. nov. (Agnatha, Psammosteiformes), from the Staryi Oskol beds (Givetian, Middle Devonian) of the Voronezh Region is described. This is the first

On high-armor bothriolepidid placoderms (Pisces, Placodermi, Bothriolepididae) from the Upper Devonian of the southern Ural Mountains and Kuznetsk Coal Basin

A new species from the southern Ural Mountains has a high dorsal crest, resembling in this character Scottish B. cristata Traquair, Australian B. gippslandiensis Hills and B. cullodenensis Long, and the new finds expand the diversity and distribution of crested bothriolepidid antiarchs.

Asterolepis alticristata n. sp. (Antiarchi) from the Upper Devonian (Frasnian) of Nunavut, Canada, and a report on the antiarch diversity of the Fram Formation

ABSTRACT A large collection of fossils from the NV2K17 locality, Upper Devonian (Frasnian) Fram Formation, Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada, represents at least two species of Asterolepis. The



Crested antiarch Bothriolepis zadonica H.D. Obrucheva from the Lower Famennian of Central European Russia

New materials on the bothriolepidid Bothriolepis zadonica H.D. Obrucheva, 1983 from the Zadonskian Regional Stage (Upper Devonian, Lower Famennian) of Central Devonian Field (Central European Russia)

An asterolepidoid antiarch (placoderm fish) from the Early Devonian of the Georgina Basin, central Australia

A small collection of well-preserved antiarch remains from the basal calcareous unit of the Cravens Peak Beds is described and figured. This represents the earliest record of antiarchs from the


A better understanding of the species of Bothriolepis is essential if the potential of this genus for palaeobiogeography is to be realized and some of the present named species may be invalid.

Bothriolepid antiarchs (Vertebrata, Placodermi) from the Devonian of the north-western part of the East European Platform

A cladistic analysis of the distribution of several features within the family Bothriolepididae using the PHYLIP program package provides a new version of the interrelationships of bothriolepids.

A new Late Devonian bothriolepid (Placodermi, Antiarcha) from Victoria, with descriptions of other species from the state

A new species of bothriolepid antiarch, Bothriolepis tatongensis sp. nov., from the Late Devonian basal conglomerate of the Hollands Creek Rhyodacite, near Tatong, northern Victoria, is described. B.

The Upper Devonian fish Bothriolepis (Placodermi: Antiarchi) from near Canowindra, New South Wales, Australia

The hypothesis that a single species of Bothriolepis is present in the Canowindra fauna is based on the consistent presence of a trifid preorbital recess on the internal headshield and separation of a reduced anterior process of the submarginal plate from the posterior process by a wide, open notch.

The antiarch Asterolepis in the Upper Devonian of New York

Asterolepis chadwicki n. sp., from the lower part of the Upper Devonian continental Katsberg Formation, at Parksville, Sullivan County, N. Y., is the first record of this genus of antiarch fish in

Psammosteiforms (Agnatha, Heterostraci) from the Lower Frasnian of the Mikhailovskii Mine, Kursk Region, Russia

Psammosteiforms, including Tartuosteus (?) zheleznogorskensis, sp. nov. and Psammosteus cf. P. praecursor Obruchev, from the Lower Frasnian (Upper Devonian) of the Mikhailovskii Mine (Kursk Region)

New antiarchs (Placodermi) from the Hunter Siltstone (Famennian) near Grenfell, N.S.W.

Ongoing work suggests that all Famennian Bothriolepis from N.S.W., including B. grenfellensis, possess a trifid preorbital recess, but differ in other aspects of headshield morphology, which indicates the Hunter Siltstone may be early Famenian in age.
