This medium size fish can reach a length of 30 cm and is well known from the Sandwick Fish Bed but, since it is often not well-preserved people don’t bother to collect it. However, it is a very important fish in the evolution of living fish. It has very tiny scales in the size range of acanthodians. The scales are covered with ganoine (see general page on this site on actinopterygians).
