Abstract

The Late Devonian fish fauna found in the Gogo Formation, Gogo Station, north Western Australia, so far contains more than 30 species of placoderms, actinopterygians, lungfishes, and crossopterygians. Acetic acid preparation yields three-dimensionally perfect specimens that show exceptionally fine detail of anatomic features. New discoveries from Gogo include new forms of camuropiscid and plourdosteid arthrodires, new information on previously described arthrodires (e.g., Tubonasus, Bullerichthys), a complete armor of the ptyctodontid Campbellodus decipiens Miles & Young 1977, new types of lungfishes (a new species of Holodipterus and a new genus of chirodipterid), and a complete skull of the osteolepiform Gogonasus andrewsi Long 1985a. -from Author
