英文摘要: Ophiopsiformes are ganoin-scaled Halecomorphi from the Mesozoic. In the Upper Jurassic, there is a high diversity of at least eight described genera (Altmuehlfuro new, Brachyichthys, Cerinichthys, Elongofuro new, Ophiopsiella, Ophiopsis, Schernfeldfuro, Zandtfuro) plus additional fish species historically assigned to “Furo”, which have not yet been revised. Recent examinations showed that fish called “Furo” are not monophyletic. Here I provide a complete morphological description of two new genera and new species (Altmuehlfuro boomerang, Elongofuro woelflei) from the Upper Jurassic Plattenkalk deposits of the Solnhofen Archipelago and of Nusplingen (both southern Germany), respectively, together with a comparison of some morphological features of Ophiopsiformes. The new species are...
