  Palaeos Vertebrates 100.500  Neopterygii: Amiiformes
Amiiforms, Gorillas and Graffiti: Some blasphemous comments on Grande and Bemis (1998)
Any discussion of Amiiformes must contend with Grande and Bemis (1998), the 500 kilogram gorilla in this part of phylospace.
The reason we care about Amiiformes -- and you would scarcely be three paragraphs deep in turgid prose from an obscure web site if you did not -- is that amiiforms are close cousins to the Teleostei, the world's most successful and diverse order of vertebrates.

 MUD BOWFIN   (AMIA CALVA)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
They are tolerant of silk, mud and higher temperatures.
Although you are likely to never see this species, the Bowfin is special in that it is the sole living species from the order Amiiformes, a transitional order that is closely related to the gars, but also exhibits many characteristics of the more modern teleost fishes.
This species is considered particularly hardy and can survive in habitats that are unsuitable to other piscivorous (fish-eating) fish like bass and pike, partially because it is capable of breathing oxygen directly from the air.

 Holostei - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Holostei are bony fish that show primitive characteristics.
There are eight species divided among two orders, the Amiiformes represented by a single living species, the bowfin (Amia calva), and the Lepisosteiformes, the gars.
There are more species to be found in the fossil record.

It has been ascribed by them to the lungfishes, but is currently believed to be allied with the bowfins (Amiiformes).
Whatever the case, it is a well-preserved specimen found here in an Early Tertiary nodule form Madagascar.
