The Devonian chondrichthyan Phoebodus (Newberry 1889) has long been known from isolated teeth recovered from a wide variety of fossil localities, ranging from the Middle Devonian to the Upper Missippian (Ginter et al. 2010). Here we provide a preliminary report of the first discovery of substantial, partly articulated skeletal and dental remains of a phoebodont, Phoebodus politus, from Famennian outrops of the eastern Anti-Atlas of Morocco. Initial comparisons support the hypothesized close… 

Evolutionary trends in large pelagic filter-feeders

ABSTRACT This paper attempts a synthesis of the evolution of large pelagic filter-feeding animals from the Cambrian to the present. Lineages known or suspected to have evolved large pelagic
