Abstract

Pycnodontiformes are an
extinct order of Actinopterygian fi shes, present from the Late Triassic
(Norian) to the Eocene. With their mostly deep, laterally compressed
bodies and comparatively large fi ns, these fi shes were mostly highly
manoeuvrable reef fi sh. The genus Macromesodon Blake, 1905 (sensu
Poyato-Ariza and Wenz, 2004) is divided again in the genus Macromesodon,
with Macromesodon macropterus (Agassiz, 1834) as the only species and
the genus Apomesodon Poyato-Ariza and Wenz, 2002.
