He decided that such a fin spine could not belong to an actinopterygian or to a sarcopterygian, but had a similar shape with some acanthodian spines.

The Early Devonian fish assemblages include, besides the dominating amphiaspidids, also cephalaspids, different placoderms, acanthodians, sarcopterygians (porolepiforms) and actinopterygians.

The MNI of Phyllolepis tolli and Devononchus tenuispinus (see Tables 2, 3) is only slightly smaller than that of the antiarch placoderms (Bothriolepis), whereas other taxa, constituted by Dunkleosteus, Chelyophorus and sarcopterygians, are represented by minor MNI, but the actual number of remains varies greatly from only one specimen of Dunkleosteus sp.
