According to Wikipedia,
“Plectocretacicus is an extinct genus of prehistoric ray-finned fish that lived during the lower Cenomanian. It contains a single species, P. clarae. Plectocretacicus is the earliest known member of the order Tetraodontiformes.”
Plectocretacicus clarae (Sorbini 1996, Fig. 1; early Late Cretaceous; about 3cm) is traditionally known as the earliest known tetraodontiform, the clade that includes queen trigger fish, ocean sunfish and pufferfish. The small size of this taxon follows a pattern seen in other vertebrates of phylogenetic miniaturization at the genesis of new clades. Distinguishing traits, such as the spine-like pectoral fins, show that this taxon had a more ancient sister with more plesiomorphic traits.
Regalecus glesne (Ascanius 1772; typically 3m in length, rarely to 11m) is the extant giant oarfish. Like the seahorse it nests with, the mouth is vertical, the dorsal fin provides the propulsion. The oarfish often swims vertically, sometimes at great depth. It feeds on plankton and small fish. The pelvic fins remind one of oars, but they do not contribute to propulsion. The oarfish is nearly all tail (caudal vertebrae). Distinct from seahorses, the snout is quite short.
