dc.description.abstract "Two genera of redfieldiid fishes, Redfieldius (Redfield) and Dictyopyge Lyell, are completely described and adequately diagnosed for the first time since their discovery more than a century ago. The number of Redfieldius species is reduced from seven to one -- R. gracilis. Two species of Dictyopyge are recognized, D. macrurus (Redfield) and a new species, D. meekeri, on the basis of meristic characters. According to recent palynological and paleobotanical evidence, the rocks of the Newark Supergroup containing Redfieldius are Liassic in age and those including Dictyopyge are Upper Triassic. The presence of other redfieldiids in the Newark Supergroup, first described from rocks of similar age in the western United States, is briefly mentioned. The geologic occurrence of fishes in the Newark Supergroup is discussed and a correlation chart for the major basins is included"--P. 133. 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.
