Paired fins and associated internal structures of the epauletic sharkHemiscyllium ocellatum, were described on the basis of three specimens. A comparison with other genera showed the epaulette shark to be, characterized by two elongated basal cartilages articulating with a distally projecting articular condyle on the coracoid, a loosely separated radial series with an intermediate series, a levator pectoralis inferior muscle and an anterolaterally developed depressor pectoralis muscle in the… Expand

A Rare Use of a Shark's Fin? Pectoral Fin Scooping of a Sharksucker fromThe Flank Area of a Female Blacktip Shark
TLDR
The anatomical flexibility and coordination of the fin is discussed; likewise, the potential origin and commonality within other species of the same family based on the rise of sharksuckers in the Eocene-Oligocene period is discussed. Expand
The ontogenetic scaling of form and function in the spotted ratfish, Hydrolagus colliei (Chondrichthyes: Chimaeriformes): Fins, muscles, and locomotion
TLDR
Using the spotted ratfish, Hydrolagus colliei, the scaling of traits relevant for locomotion, including median and paired fin external anatomy, the musculature of the pectoral and pelvic fins, and the kinematics are quantified, highlighting the complex changes in form and function throughout ontogeny. Expand
Undulatory Locomotion in Freshwater Stingray Potamotrygon Orbignyi: Kinematics, Pectoral Fin Morphology, and Ground Effects on Rajiform Swimming
TLDR
In this work, insights into locomotion by an undulatory batoid, freshwater stingray Potamotrygon orbignyi are offered, combining studies of live animals, physical models, and preserved specimens to reconstruct three-dimensional pectoral fin motions. Expand
Comparative punting kinematics and pelvic fin musculature of benthic batoids
TLDR
Results suggest that benthic locomotion is widespread among batoids, and concordance of musculature with punting ability provides predictive power regarding the punting kinematics of other elasmobranchs based upon gross muscular examinations. Expand
Synchronized swimming: coordination of pelvic and pectoral fins during augmented punting by the freshwater stingray Potamotrygon orbignyi.
TLDR
This study of an augmented punter, the freshwater stingray Potamotrygon orbignyi, demonstrates the synchrony of pelvic and pectoral fin cycles and finds no significant relationship between pECToral fin kinematics (frequency, wave height, and wave speed) and punt performance. Expand
Functional subdivision of fin protractor and retractor muscles underlies pelvic fin walking in the African lungfish Protopterus annectens
TLDR
Data indicate that subdivisions of protractor and retractor muscles impart functional complexity to a morphologically simple system, and suggest a mechanism that allows lungfish to produce a tetrapod-like walking gait with only two muscles. Expand
Muscles of Chondrichthyan Paired Appendages: Comparison With Osteichthyans, Deconstruction of the Fore–Hindlimb Serial Homology Dogma, and New Insights on the Evolution of the Vertebrate Neck
TLDR
Comparisons of paired appendages muscles of representatives of each major extant gnathostome group show that many of the strikingly similar fore‐ and hindlimb muscles of extant tetrapods evolved independently in each appendage, contradict the idea that at least some muscles present in the tetrapod fore‐and hindlimbs were already present in some form in the first fishes with pectoral and pelvic appendages.

Muscle activity and hydrodynamic function of pelvic fins in trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
  • E. Standen
  • Physics, Medicine
  • Journal of Experimental Biology
  • 2010
TLDR
Four main conclusions are reached: first, pelvic fins are actively oscillated during slow-speed swimming; antagonistic abductor and adductor muscles contracted simultaneously, their collective action producing a unique contralateral oscillating behaviour in the fins. Expand
Pelvic girdle shape predicts locomotion and phylogeny in batoids
TLDR
It is illustrated that pelvic girdle shape is a good predictor of punt mode, some forms of swimming mode, and a species' Order, which provides evidence for the convergent evolution of morphological features that support both sprawled‐gait terrestrial walking and aquatic bottom‐walking. Expand
A NEW RECONSTRUCTION OF ONYCHOSELACHE TRAQUAIRI, COMMENTS ON EARLY CHONDRICHTHYAN PECTORAL GIRDLES AND HYBODONTIFORM PHYLOGENY
TLDR
This first report of material from the Mumbie Quarry exposure of the Glencartholm fish beds presents a new reconstruction of Onychoselache showing broad-based cephalic and nuchal spines, and exceptionally large pectoral fins. Expand
