Abstract

New material from the Famennian of Morocco in the southern Maider comprises chondrichthyan teeth (Thrinacodus, Cobelodus, Denaea, Stethacanthus), actinopterygian remains (scales, teeth and hemilepidotrichium) and one acanthodian scale. The absence of crushing teeth suggests deeper water environments for the Maider Basin than the Tafilalt Basin. Vertebrate microremains from the Famennian of Sardinia, including Siamodus and Jalodus teeth, are illustrated and described. Ichthyofaunal relationships of the North Gondwanan platform during the Famennian are examined.
