Abstract

The vertebrate faunas in limestone samples of the Early and Middle Devonian ages (Pragian, early Emsian, late Emsian, and latest Eifelian) which were collected from five localities in the Barrandian area, Bohemia, include scales, tesserae, bones, and teeth of acanthodians, placoderms, chondrichthyans, and sarcopterygians. Although the vertebrate remains are not abundant the assemblages are significant in being dominated by particular taxa. Apart from undetermined microremains the genera Cheiracanthoides, Laliacanthus, Nostolepis, and Tassiliodus were determined.
