Taxonomic remark From Andreev et al., 2016: Kannathalepididae was expanded subsequent to its erection to include the Wenlockian genus Frigorilepis, which was described from articulated body fossils (Märss et al., 2002, 2006). Nevertheless, crown morphogenesis in Frigorilepis has not been demonstrated to proceed in discrete growth phases as in elegestolepid taxa, which are further distinguished by the presence of scale-neck canal openings. The absence of characters diagnostic for Elegestolepidida results in treating Frigorilepis as family and order incertae sedis for the time being. [details]
