dc.description.abstract "A Lower Triassic (Sulphur Mountain Formation) marine fossil fish assemblage from the Wapiti Lake area, British Columbia, is described. It includes the following taxa: cf. Palaeobates, Chondrichthyes, incertae sedis, Pteronisculus sp., Birgeria sp., Boreosomus sp., Bobasatrania canadensis, cf. Perleidus, Australosomus sp., Saurichthys sp., Parasemionotidae, incertae sedis, Albertonia cupidinia, and Whiteia sp. Most of these forms, or close relatives, are also known from the marine Lower Triassic rocks of East Greenland, Spitzbergen, and Madagascar. Although the Wapiti Lake specimens have not added significantly to our knowledge of the morphology and systematics of marine Scythian fishes, the assemblage has helped us understand their paleozoogeographic distribution around the periphery of Pangaea"--P. 519. en_US

Files in this item

This item appears in the following Collection(s)

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
