Abstract

The Osteostraci are an early clade of jawless vertebrates widely regarded as the sister group of all jawed vertebrates. Despite their prominent role in the Silurian to Devonian marginal marine ecosystems, the early evolutionary history of this subclass remains poorly understood. Here we report the discovery of a head shield (part with broken right margin and counterpart) of Kalanaspis delectabilis gen. et sp. nov. from the Kalana Quarry in Central Estonia. Reliably dated to the Pranognathus tenuis Conodont Zone, Raikk
