The so-called 'Atholville Beds' (Dineley and Williams 1968), exposed at Campbellton and Atholville, have been examined by paleontologists since 1881 and have yielded ostracoderms, arthrodires, acanthodians and chondrichthyans (Whiteaves 1881, 1889; Woodward 1889, 1892; Traquair 1890, 1893).
The first data about placoderms from Plucki were presented by Ivanov & Ginter (1997) who initially described a partly preserved skull-roof of an eastmanosteid arthrodire.
The limestone middle part (up to 10 cm) is rich in cephalopods and arthrodire placoderms.

Another aspect is also significant: the sclerotic plates may be either thin as probably in Eukaia, also in the large and specific arthrodire Carolowilhelmina (Mark-Kurik & Carls 2002, fig.

Noteworthy is the absence of the characteristic Middle Devonian arthrodires Homostius and Heterostius (Mark-Kurik & Nemliher 2003).
