Cranial osteology of the Middle Jurassic (Callovian) Martillichthys renwickae (Neopterygii:Pachycormiformes), with comments on the evolution and ecology of edentulous pachycormiforms

Abstract:

Our understanding of the ecology and phylogenetic relationships of Pachycormiformes, a group of Mesozoic stem teleosts including the iconic Leedsichthys, has often been hindered by a lack of comprehensive morphological information. Micro-CT scanning of an articulated, though flattened, cranium of the edentulous Martillichthys renwickae from the Middle Jurassic (Callovian) Oxford Clay of the UK reveals previously unknown internal details of the most complete suspension-feeding pachycormiform s...
