Reconstruction of species in lateral view (after Miller, 1849).

A very common fish in the Sandwick Fish Bed and well known from the excellent descriptions and reconstructions by Jarvik (1948).

This middle-sized osteolepid probably preyed on the smaller acanthodians and juvenile fish it could handle.
