Abstract

The fossil fishes described in this paper have been gathered together from various sources, and I am indebted to the following persons for the loan of specimens and for other facilities of research: Mr. Heber Longman, Director of the Queensland Museum, who first brought the occurrence of the beautifully preserved fishes from Bugaldi to my notice; Dr. Ida Brown, who subsequently discussed the occurrence with me and arranged for me to borrow the material in the Museum of the Geology Department, University of Sydney; Dr. A. B. Walkom, Director of the Australian Museum, who kindly loaned the specimens in his care, and also enabled me to examine material of the living Murray Cod; Miss E. C. Pope, of the Australian Museum, who supplied measurements and scales of the living species; Mr. J. A. Tubb, M.Sc., of the Fisheries Division, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, who generously placed at my disposal his unpublished notes on anatomical variation within the genus Maccullochella; Mr. G.
