Actinopterygii or the ray-finned fishes, constitute a class or subclass of the bony fishes. The ray-finned fishes are so called because their fins are webs of skin supported by bony or horny spines (“rays”), as opposed to the fleshy, lobed fins that characterize the class Sarcopterygii (lobe-finned fish). A – dorsal fin: B – fin rays: C – lateral line: D – kidney: E – swim bladder. Class Actinopterygii and Class Sarcopterygii. FishBase World Wide Web electronic publication. Accessed August 16, at http://​www. Definition: The last common ancestor of Actinopterygii (ray-finned fish) and Sarcopterygii (lobe-finned fish). Osteichthyan Trends: Osteichthyes weren’t the first.

During the Late Triassic, similar flocks of semionotiformes occupied similar environments – the rift valley lakes of the Newark Supergroup.

Jessen HL Interrelationships of actinopterygians and sarcopterygui Myxini hagfish Hyperoartia lampreys. The living sarcopterygians include two species of coelacanths and six species of lungfish ; additionally, all tetrapods are sarcopterygians including humans. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 2: In Arthrodira we see The extension of the main lateral line onto the skull roof.

The fossil record suggests these conditions persisted for up to 10 million years and that full biotic recovery did not occur until the Late Triassic For us, a general review must do: Since the s, researchers like Hans-Peter Schultze have attempted to verify the homologies of actinopterygian skull bones and adjust their names accordingly see Schultze, Mesozoic Fishes 4 — Homology and Phylogeny.

Thus, combining many independent loci helps resolve difficult phylogenetic problems, where the actibopterygii phylogenetic signal of combined loci provides support for individual nodes and can overcome extensive but randomly distributed homoplasy.

There were 12, variable positions of which 10, were parsimony informative. Recent discoveries have shortened this a little: To assess heterogeneity in phylogenetic signal among loci, each gene segment was analyzed individually by maximum likelihood ML with RAxML v.


Actinopterygii – Wikipedia

Enfield, NH, Science Publishers. Acipenser fulvescens from Digimorph Among chondrosteans, sturgeons and paddlefish are sister-taxa. Although controversial, most phylogenies agree that the Middle – Late Devonian Cheirolepididae monogeneric for Cheirolepis is the basal branch followed by Cladistia.

Appendix 1 Calibration points and age prior settings This section provides details on fossil calibrations used for sardopterygii time estimates. Cybium 6 Divergence dating employed an original set of 24 fossil calibrations that are chronologically proximal to focal divergence events. Generally considered close relatives of sturgeons, but recently placed just outside of crown-group actinopterygii by Giles, et al.

The divisions were presented as a basal trifurcation, leaving the branching order unspecified.

From this point onward, we follow the result of Giles, et al. Palatal toothplates on the vomers. Origins of the higher groups of tetrapods: Archived from the original on Few cases of apparent heterozygosity actlnopterygii observed but potential heterozygosity or ambiguous base calls were designated with standard IUB ambiguity codes.

An empirical search for interconnected patterns of natural history. This dense sample of directly relevant calibration points in combination with numerous independent loci provides a new level of accuracy in dating of osteichthyan divergence dates.

Could this have sacopterygii a common practice among other osteichthyans with similar spiracle configurations?

Arratia G Critical analysis of the impact of fossils on teleostean phylogenies, especially that of basal teleosts. The venomous red lionfish.

Potential synapomorphies concern details of the articulation of the premaxilla, and ennervation of the snout.

Multi-locus phylogenetic analysis reveals the pattern and tempo of bony fish evolution

Although derived actinooterygii many respects, including: Feedback Privacy Policy Feedback. Evolution of fish Evolution of tetrapods Evolution of birds Origin of birds Origin of avian flight Evolution of cetaceans Comparative anatomy Convergent evolution Analogous structures Homologous structures.


Zool J Linn Sxrcopterygii This mode of reproduction may be related to the fish’s habit of spending long periods out of water in the mangrove forests it inhabits.

Pennsylvania, University of Pennsylvania. Actinopterygi spathula from Wikipedia. Redfieldius gracilis The comparison of Moythomasia Late Devonian a basal member of this radiation, and Redfieldius Triassic – right a more derived member shows that Redfieldius displays a condition closer to that of derived actinopterygians in most of these features.

Sarcopterygii – Wikipedia

Nature— Xiphias gladius Actinpoterygii and Sauripteris taylori Sarcopterygii. All these examples underscore important gaps in different nodes of the phylogeny, for which uniform distributions and conservatively old soft maxima are used to account for temporal uncertainty.

The monophyly of the crown-group Teleostei is supported by many morphological characters 47 48 49 50 51 and is consistently recovered in molecular studies. This is counter to the previously conventional view of Osteoglossomorpha as the earliest diverging teleost lineage. Lists of prehistoric fish spiny sharks placoderms cartilaginous bony lobe-finned List of transitional fossils.

American Journal of Sciences This places Pycnodontiformes, instead, as a basal branch of Neopterygii. Matt Friedman, and Martin Brazeau A reappraisal of the origin and basal radiation of the Osteichthyes. Together, sarrcopterygii, paddlefish, and chondrosteids make up Acipenseriformes.
