An early fossil remora (Echeneoidea) reveals the evolutionary assembly of the adhesion disc

Abstract:

The adhesion disc of living remoras (Echeneoidea: Echeneidae) represents one of the most remarkable structural innovations within fishes. Although homology between the spinous dorsal fin of generalized acanthomorph fishes and the remora adhesion disc is widely accepted, the sequence of evolutionary- rather than developmental-transformations leading from one to the other has remained unclear. Here, we show that the early remora †Opisthomyzon (Echeneoidea: †Opisthomyzonidae), from the early Oli...
