Evolutionary origin and phylogeny of the modern holocephalans (Chondrichthyes: Chimaeriformes): a mitogenomic perspective.
At the time of writing, FISH-BOL included records from 511 elasmobranch species (46% of the 1114 then recognised shark and ray species) and from 24 holocephalans (52% of the 46 then recognised species).
The holocephalans from this suite include Helodus (Heliodontidae), Chitonodus (Chochliodontidae), and two flat tooth plates that are likely chochliodonts (Figure 1).
