Abstract The Rhizodontida are an extinct order of large, predatory, lobe-finned fishes, found world-wide in Devonian and Carboniferous freshwater deposits. They are thought to be basal members of the tetrapod lineage. In this paper the pectoral fin skeleton of Rhizodus hibberti , a derived member of the group, is described in detail for the first time. It shows that muscular processes of the humerus (the deltoid and supinator processes) may have appeared later in tetrapod evolution than… Expand
