Both of the known coelacanth species that survive today, Latimeria chalumnae and Latimeria menadoensis, are anatomically similar to their fossil relatives.

A, B: Overall view of the skeletal organisation of the extant coelacanth and of its closest relative. A: Latimeria chalumnae. B: Macropoma lewesiensis. Relative to the body length, in L. chalumnae the vertebrae are smaller, the truncal region of the vertebral column is longer and the post anal region is shorter than in M.

lewesiensis. The West Indian Ocean coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae), sometimes known as gombessa, African coelacanth, or simply coelacanth, is one of two extant species of coelacanth, a rare order of vertebrates more closely related to lungfish, amphibians, reptiles and mammals than to the common ray-finned fishes.

Latimeria chalumnae is a crossopterygian. The fish were first discovered around the Comoro Family: Latimeriidae. The coelacanths (/ ˈ s iː l ə k æ n θ / SEE-lə-kanth) constitute a now-rare order of fish that includes two extant species in the genus Latimeria: the West Indian Ocean coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae) primarily found near the Comoro Islands off the east coast of Africa and the Indonesian coelacanth (Latimeria menadoensis).

They follow the oldest-known living lineage of Sarcopterygii Kingdom: Animalia. Coelacanths are elusive, deep-sea creatures, living in depths up to 2, feet below the surface. They can be huge, reaching feet or more and weighing pounds.

Scientists estimate they can. “Coelacanth” is a term that refers to an entire order of fish, the Coelacanthiformes. The modern coelacanths are of the genus Latimeria, and none of the ancient fish belong to that genus—it ought to be fairly obvious that Latimeria is clearly distinct from any of the fossil forms if it was assigned to a unique genus.

The brilliant creationists who point to Latimeria and claim that it is. coelacanth Latimeria chalumnae coelacanth (sē′lə-kănth′) n. Any of various mostly extinct lobe-finned fishes of the group Coelacanthiformes or Actinistia, known only in fossil form until a living species, Latimeria chalumnae, was identified in A second Latimeria species was described in [New Latin Coelacanthus, former genus name.

Extant coelacanths (Latimeria chalumnae) were first discovered in the western Indian Ocean in ; ina second species of coelacanth, Latimeria menadoensis, was discovered off the north. Lungfish and coelacanths (the crossopterygian Latimeria) are the living members of the sarcopterygia (Hedges, ; Rosen et al., ).The morphology of the basal telencephalon in coelacanths resembles that in lungfish, but the pallium in coelacanths is greatly enlarged (Nieuwenhuys and Meek, b).In the African and Australian lungfish (González and Northcutt, ; Reiner and Northcutt.

Appendix 1 lists several salient facts regarding the general biology of coelacanths. We have also written an up-to-date review of all molecular biological studies concerning Latimeria [9].

Coelacanth. The coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae) is the only living representative of an ancient order of fishes, until recently thought to have become extinct 70 million years ago, at about the same time as thehowever, scientists were astonished when living coelacanths were discovered (this is described later).

The coelacanth is a sarcoptergian, or lobe-finned fish.Sarcopterygii (lobe-finned fishes) > Coelacanthiformes (Coelacanths) > Latimeriidae (Gombessa) Etymology: Latimeria: Taken from Miss Courtenay Latimer worker in the East London Musuem; she contributed to the update of the fish (Coelacanth, Latimeria chalumnae) (Ref.

The African coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae) attracted international attention when a specimen was netted off the South African coast inas .
