Revision of Luxilites striolatus, marine fish (Teleostei, Tselfatiiformes) from the Upper Cretaceous of Kansas (United States)

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 132(1):25-34.

The skull of Luxilites striolatus, a species of a monospecific genus of fossil teleosts from the marine Upper Cretaceous of Kansas, is studied. The osteology shows that Luxilites is a valid genus of the order Tselfatiiformes, close to Bananogmius, and that it belongs to a subgroup of Plethodidae comprising, besides Bananogmius, also Syntegmodus and Niobrara.
