On the existence of an osteoglossid fossil fish near the parent of the extant genus heterotis in the middle cretaceous of kwango zaire


Revue de Zoologie Africaine 89(4): 964-968
On the existence of an osteoglossid fossil fish near the parent of the extant genus heterotis in the middle cretaceous of kwango zaire
Paradercetis kipalaensis Casier, E. was reexamined, and a different interpretation is proposed by which the former frontals become the enormous nasals and the former parietals the frontals. This makes it certain that the fossil is an osteoglossid and a heterotine, near Heterotis. It further raises the difficult question of the existence of a marine osteoglossid.
