Ray-finned fishes are a diverse, but understudied, component of the Maastrichtian marine fauna of the southeast Netherlands (Limburg) and northeast Belgium (Liege-Limburg. [] Key Result Higher teleost clades reported here are: Pycnodontiformes (Pycnodontidae), Pachycormiformes (Pachycormidae), Aspidorhynchidiformes (Aspidorhynchidae), Ichthyodectiformes (Saurodontidae), Pachyrhizodontoidei (Pachyrhizodontidae), Aulopiformes (Apateopholidae, Cimolichthyidae, Dercetidae, Enchodontidae), Polymixiiformes…

Offshore marine actinopterygian assemblages from the Maastrichtian–Paleogene of the Pindos Unit in Eurytania, Greece
TLDR
This study expands the poor record of body fossils from this critical time interval, especially for smaller sized taxa, while providing a rare, paleogeographically constrained, qualitative glimpse of open-water Tethyan ecosystems from both before and after the extinction event.
Large-bodied sabre-toothed anchovies reveal unanticipated ecological diversity in early Palaeogene teleosts
TLDR
The identification of large-bodied, piscivorous anchovies contributes to an emerging picture of a phylogenetically diverse guild of predatory ray-finned fishes in early Palaeogene marine settings, which include completely extinct lineages alongside members of modern marine groups and taxa that are today restricted to freshwater or deep-sea environments.
Late Cretaceous (Campanian) actinopterygian fishes from the Kristianstad Basin of southern Sweden
Abstract Although a diverse range of aquatic vertebrates are documented from the Upper Cretaceous (mid-Campanian) marine strata of the Kristianstad Basin in southern Sweden, only chondrichthyans and
Notodectes is the First Endemic Pachycormiform Genus (Osteichthyes, Actinopterygii, Pachycormiformes) in the Southern Hemisphere
TLDR
Notodectes represents the first endemic pachycormiform from the Southern Hemisphere and the first specimen found in Mendoza Province and is the first fast-swimming and clearly ichthyophagous pachy cormid reported from the Jurassic of South America.
A fossil assemblage from the mid–late Maastrichtian of Gavdos Island, Greece, provides insights into the pre-extinction pelagic ichthyofaunas of the Tethys
The global body-fossil record of marine ‘fishes’ from the time interval immediately preceding the Cretaceous–Paleogene Extinction is markedly poor. This deficiency appears to be further exacerbated
The trace fossil Lepidenteron lewesiensis (Mantell, 1822) from the Upper Cretaceous of southern Poland
Lepidenteron lewesiensis (Mantell, 1822) is an unbranched trace fossil lined with small fish scales and bones, without a constructed wall. It is characteristic of the Upper Cretaceous epicontinental,
A new species of dercetid (Teleostei, Aulopiformes) from the type Maastrichtian of southern Limburg, the Netherlands
Abstract On the basis of dissociated and scattered skull bones and several types of scutes and scales of a single, large-sized individual, a new species of dercetid is recorded from the lower to

A Reappraisal of the Origin and Basal Radiation of the Osteichthyes
TLDR
This distribution of characters is used to interpret the placement of problematic Siluro-Devonian genera traditionally assigned to Actinopterygii, and suggests these taxa are stem osteichthyans.
REASSESSMENT OF THE AFFINITIES OF THE EXTINCT GENUS CYLINDRACANTHUS (OSTEICHTHYES)
TLDR
The perplexing fossil genus Cylindracanthus has long been a taxonomic problem, and an emergent concept of relationships of the genus is now hypothesized, as well as potential biostratigraphic utility.

The acanthopterygians of the English Chalk are redescribed, and members of all the genera known by more than one specimen are treated at length, and a new order Ctenothrissiformes is made.

TLDR
The trajectory of morphological diversification in this major radiation from its first appearance in the Late Cretaceous to the Miocene is reconstructed using a geometric morphometric database comprising more than 600 extinct species known from complete body fossils to suggest that multiple factors contributed to the prolific anatomical radiation of acanthomorphs.

TLDR
A new Ichthyodectidae is described from the Uppermost Albian (Early Cretaceous) of the Fauge Dale (Isere, France) and Faugichthys appears apomorphic in regard to the genera Thrissops, Eubiodectes, Chirocentrites, Cladocyclus and Cooyoo.

TLDR
The historical biogeographic analysis of the aspidorhynchids indicates a Pangeal-type relationship, dating as far back as the Lower Jurassic.
