Abstract

Cosfordia truncata Woodward is based on several incomplete specimens found in the 1880's. The recent discovery of the first complete specimen of C. truncata in a Triassic shale lens near Gosford, New South Wales, makes possible the first restoration of the species and clarifies its relationships with other dipnoans, living and extinct.
