Abstract

A collection of fauna was newly uncovered in the southern region of the Boskovice Graben, in the "Za lesním úřadem" locality near Moravský Krumlov (Early Permian, Lower Rotliegend, Padochov Formation). Small actinopterygians are the most numerous vertebrate fauna. Their well-preserved bones as are operculum and suboperculum clearly place actinopterygians in the family Aeduellidae, and they are similar to Neslovicella rzehaki Štamberg, 2007. Actinopterygians were found in association with teeth and spines of xenacanthids, resembling the genus Bohemiacanthus. A relatively well-preserved skeleton of branchisaurid amphibian rounds out enumeration of the fauna.
