A second skull of "Ligulalepis"

John Long, Benedict King

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Previously, a single specimen of an isolated osteichthyan skull and braincase, referred to the genus “Ligulalepis”, was known from the Emsian Wee Jasper limestones in New South Wales, Australia. The specimen has been interpreted either as a stem osteichthyan (Basden et al. 2000) or a stem actinopterygian (Basden and Young 2001). However, this first specimen was anteriorly incomplete, obscuring details of the skull roof and nasal capsules.
