A New Genus of Palaeonisciformes from Carboniferous Strata in Ningxia
      Two specimens were discovered at the top of Tupo Formation (Late Namurian, Carboniferous) in Zhongwei city, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. Their bodies are long and thin with few scales. The hyomandibular is slightly oblique and extends from the middle of the parietal to the end of bigonial arch. The maxillary is faint hilt-shaped. The opercular is as big as subopercular. The orbital is large and far forward. The median fin-rays are segmented and branched. The dorsal lobe of the tail becomes reduced to an abbreviated heterocercal tail. In general, the two specimens possess many more remarkable characteristics in the process of evolution from the chondrosteans to the holosteians. So a new genus is proposed to create in Palaeonisciformes for the two specimens, and more specimens are needed to help us find out which family should the new genus belong to.
