Entelognathus #4: Study of a weird fish by Gogosardina Entelognathus #4: Study of a weird fish by Gogosardina
2013, Acrylics on card with subsequent digital touchup.

Anterolateral and laterial studies of Entelognathus primordialis.

Damn that dermal ornamentation is insanely complex. Note that there are two large bony nasal openings in the snout of the fossil - I've interpreted them as housing both pairs of nostrils.

Placoderm in the sense of "paraphyletic grade of armoured stem-gnathostomes", yes.
