ABSTRACT Thomson (1968, Postilla 124:1–13) described and diagnosed the tristichopterid Hyneria lindae from parts of a disarticulated skull and isolated scales recovered from the Upper Devonian (Famennian) Catskill Formation of Pennsylvania, U.S.A. Since the publication of that description, knowledge of the tristichopterid clade has grown significantly, with numerous new descriptions of Famennian taxa from around the world. Additionally, a concerted effort to collect vertebrates from the… 

Second species of Langlieria (Tristichopteridae, Sarcopterygii) from the Upper Devonian Catskill Formation of Pennsylvania, U.S.A., and a new phylogenetic consideration of Tristichopteridae

TLDR
Sedimentological and stratigraphic data suggest that the discovery site represents a distal, tide-dominated location within the Catskill Delta system with a greater marine influence than has been reconstructed for the previously described Catskill Formation tristichopterids.

A New Species of Eusthenodon (Sarcopterygii, Tristichopteridae) from the Upper Devonian (Famennian) of Pennsylvania, U.S.A., and a Review of Eusthenodon Taxonomy

TLDR
A new species of Eusthenodon from the Upper Devonian (Famennian) Catskill Formation was collected from talus blocks at the base of a road cut along the Cogan House Exit Ramp on U.S. 15/Interstate 99 and may support the hypothesis that tristichopterids occupied the role of top predator in the freshwater ecosystems of the Catskill Delta complex.

A New Species of Megalichthys (Sarcopterygii, Megalichthyidae) from the Upper Devonian (Famennian) of Pennsylvania, U.S.A., and A Report on the Cosmine-Covered Osteolepiform Fossils of the Catskill Formation

TLDR
The Catskill Formation continues to produce, in some cases, the only known Devonian occurrence of otherwise younger taxa, and is indicated to produce a new species of Megalichthys, distinguished from other species by a pineal series of bones, a triangular-shaped principal gular, and a lack of sensory canal pores on the postparietal.

Eusthenopteron jenkinsi sp. nov. (Sarcopterygii, Tristichopteridae) from the Upper Devonian of Nunavut, Canada, and a Review of Eusthenopteron Taxonomy

TLDR
A new large-bodied species of Eusthenopteron is represented from the Upper Devonian Fram Formation of Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada and is distinguished by its large body size, pitted rather than tuberculated dermal cranial ornament, and a distinct caudolateral margin of the vomer.

Tristichopterids (Sarcopterygii, Tetrapodomorpha) from the Upper Devonian Tetrapod-Bearing Locality of Strud (Belgium, Upper Famennian), with Phylogenetic and Paleobiogeographic Considerations

ABSTRACT We describe new material of the tristichopterids cf. Langlieria socqueti and cf. Eusthenodon wangsjoi and other unassignable tetrapodomorph remains from the upper Famennian locality of

Long-bone development and life-history traits of the Devonian tristichopterid Hyneria lindae

TLDR
The bone histology of H. lindae would favour the hypothesis that a slow long-bone development could be a general character for stem tetrapods, and the lines-of-arrested-growth pattern and late ossification of specimen ANSP 21483 suggest that it probably had a long juvenile stage before reaching sexual maturity.

New information on the giant Devonian lobe-finned fish Edenopteron from the New South Wales south coast

Abstract Edenopteron, with a lower jaw some 48 cm long, and total length perhaps exceeding 3 m, is the largest Devonian lobe-fin known from semi-articulated remains. New material described from the

Estuarine fish and tetrapod evolution: insights from a Late Devonian (Famennian) Gondwanan estuarine lake and a southern African Holocene equivalent

  • R. GessA. Whitfield
  • Environmental Science
    Biological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society
  • 2020
TLDR
Correlation of tetrapods (and elpistostegids) with fish nursery areas in the Late Devonian lends strong support to this hypothesis, suggesting that adaptations permitting improved access to the abundant juvenile fish within the littoral zone of estuarine lakes and continental water bodies may have been pivotal in the evolution of Tetrapods.

Evolutionary Homology in the Fin-To-Limb Transition: Evaluating the Morphology of Foramina in a Late Devonian Humerus from the Catskill Formation, Clinton County, Pennsylvania

TLDR
The internal morphology of ANSP 21350 is reconstructed using micro-computed tomography scan data, and an evolutionary pathway for the ventral ridge foramina is presented that incorporates the existing tetrapodomorph fossil record.

Heddleichthys– a new tristichopterid genus from the Dura Den Formation, Midland Valley, Scotland (Famennian, Late Devonian)

TLDR
The biogeographical implications of tristichopterid occurences world-wide seem to corroborate the picture provided by other vertebrate groups, and give further support to one of two main hypotheses concerning the relative positions of Gondwana and Laurussia, the two major palaeocontinents during the Late Devonian.

Abstract: Additional material of a large specimen of tristichopterid fish from the Upper Famennian Evieux Formation of Belgium is described. This large fish was previously assigned to

A Gigantic Sarcopterygian (Tetrapodomorph Lobe-Finned Fish) from the Upper Devonian of Gondwana (Eden, New South Wales, Australia)

TLDR
The hypothesis that tristichopterids evolved in Laurussia and later dispersed into Gondwana, and a derived subgroup of large Late Devonian genera dispersed from Gondswana, is inconsistent with the evidence of the new taxon.

The monospecific genus Ageleodus is a primitive chondrichthyan known exclusively from isolated Late Devonian and Carboniferous teeth. Due in part to the paucity of material, dental variation in

TLDR
The pectoral fins of Sauripterus were optimized for adduction and flexion against the water column or a solid substrate, suggesting a sister-group relationship between rhizodontids and tetrapods.
