Latimeria chalumnae overview

Lineage: Eukaryota[1576]; Metazoa[589]; Chordata[261]; Craniata[256]; Vertebrata[256]; Euteleostomi[252]; Coelacanthiformes[1]; Coelacanthidae[1]; Latimeria[1]; Latimeria chalumnae[1]
The coelacanth is a deep-sea fish once thought to be extinct. Coelacanths are lobe-finned fish more closely related to tetrapods than to ray-finned fish. Only two living species are known; the Comoran coelocanth (Latimeria chalumnae) is native to the coastal regions of the Indian Ocean while the Sulawesi coelocanth (Latimeria menadoensis More...
