A new genus and new species of trematode (Plagiorchioidea: Macroderoididae) from Lepisosteus
As explained above, Amia and Lepisosteus
were used as outgroups; the descriptions given in the literature concerning numerous other basal actinopterygians, either fossil or living, were also taken into account in the polarization of the characters.
In zoology, names above family-group level are not typified, but the same exclusivity could be conveyed by use of a taxon at the same rank as Halecostomi for Lepisosteus
spotted gar (Lepisosteus
oculatus) 16.6%, smallmouth buffalo (lctobius bubalus) 14.2%, southern flounder (Paralichthys lethostigma) 4.8%, and bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) 4.6%.
Remains of bony fish are the most abundant microfossils and include identifiable teeth and scales of Lepisosteus

RESULTS--We collected 83 total freshwater drum at 5 sample sites along the lower Missouri River, along with 9 other species of fishes: shovelnose sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus platorynchus), pallid sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus albus), shortnose gar (Lepisosteus
platostomus), goldeye (Hiodon alosoides), common carp (Cyprinus carpio), channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), blue catfish (Ictalurus furcatus), flathead catfish (Pylodictis olivaris), and striped bass (Morone saxatilis).
