dc.description.abstract "The first Mesozoic actinopterygian fishes from Antarctica were discovered in lacustrine interbeds within the Lower Jurassic Kirkpatrick Basalt, in the Transantarctic Mountains, Victoria Land. Except for an enigmatic patch of scales, all the specimens collected are assigned to a new genus and species, Oreochima ellioti, which is placed in the pholidophoriform family Archaeomaenidae. Prior to this discovery, the archaeomaenids were known only from Lower Jurassic continental deposits of Australia"--P. [1]. en_US
