Atherinids are known from fossils as early as the beginning of the Eocene (Svichenskaya 1952) and evolution and speciation of the family Atherinidae appears to have occurred prior to the split up of Gondwana with this family and its closest relatives, the Melanotaeniidae, Pseudomugilidae and Telmatherinidae all beginning their existence at the head of the Australian Plate and ultimately constrained by the Pacific Plate as the former advanced towards the latter.
