Palaeozoic microvertebrate remains are documented from the Point Hibbs Formation, Point Hibbs, western Tasmania. They comprise scales, teeth and ornamented dermal bone from acanthodians “Nostolepis” guangxiensis, Nostolepis spp., Gomphonchus? bogongensis, Trundlelepis cervicostulata and Watsonacanthus? sp., onychodontiform sarcopterygians, and four types of placoderms. The microvertebrate fauna supports a Lower Devonian (Pragian) age for the deposit, when compared with other eastern Australian occurrences of these taxa.
