The caudal skeleton of basal teleosts, its conventions, and some of its major evolutionary novelties in a temporal dimension

The present study represents an evaluation of the current knowledge of the caudal endoskeleton of basal fossil and extant teleosts and gives new information on the origin, development and homology of

Osteology and phylogenetic relationships of Furloichthys bonarellii gen . and sp . nov . ( Teleostei , Ichthyodectidae ) , a tropical fish from the Upper Cretaceous of central Italy

The osteology of Furloichthys bonarellii gen. and sp. nov., a small ichthyodectid fish from the marine Cenomanian of the Furlo river (The Marche, central Italy), is studied in details. The new genus

New information on two Late Cretaceous (Turonian) fishes from Lac des Bois, Northwest Territories, Canada

Fishes from Turonian deposits at Lac des Bois, Northwest Territories, Canada, have previously been described based on material from calcareous mudstone concretions collected in 1969. A more recent

Morphology, Taxonomy, and Phylogeny of Triassic Pholidophorid Fishes (Actinopterygii, Teleostei)

TLDR
This study presents the first comprehensive revision of ‘pholidophoriform’ fishes, which are a key taxon for understanding the early diversification of teleost fish, and proposes a new hypothesis for character evolution within basal Teleostei.

On the occurrence of Gillicus arcuatus (Cope, 1875) (Pisces, Ichthyodectiformes) in Mexico

This work provides the description of the first specimen of the species Gillicus arcuatus (Cope, 1875) collected in Mexico. This ichthyodectiform fossil was collected in a marl flagstone quarry on

Considerations about the Late Cretaceous genus Chirocentrites and erection of the new genus Heckelichthys (Teleostei, Ichthyodectiformes) - A new visit inside the ichthyodectid phylogeny

TLDR
The author describes briefly the osteology of the three valid species of the Late Cretaceous genus Chirocentrites and creates the new genus Heckelichthys for the two other species, C. microdon and C. vexillifer.

The leptolepid fish Cavenderichthys talbragarensis (Woodward, 1895) from the Talbragar Fish Bed (Late Jurassic) near Gulgong, New South Wales

Leptolepis" talbragarensisWoodward, 1895, is the most common fish species in the Talbragar Fish Bed near Gulgong, New South Wales. The genus Cavenderichthys Arratia, 1997, has this species as its

A new Crossognathus (Actinopterygii, Teleostei) from the Lower Cretaceous of Romania with comments on Crossognathidae relationships

TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of crossognathids are discussed and several characters indicating possible relationships with the Late Jurassic Varasichthyidae are pointed out.
