The actinopterygian fishes from the continental Westphalian to the Lower Permian basins in the Czech Republic are reviewed and compared with those of deposits of equivalent age in some central and western European Basins. Nine genera of actinopterygians belonging to eight families are known from the Westphalian-Stephanian sediments, and five genera belonging to four families are known from the Early Permian sediments of the Bohemian Massif. The new family Sceletophoridae is erected for the genus Sceletophorus from the Westphalian D. Very close relationships of the actinopterygian fauna between the Bohemian Massif and especially the basins of the French Massif Central are discussed.
