Abstract
    The author describes briefly the osteology of the three valid species of the Late Cretaceous genus Chirocentrites. He shows that only the type species, C. coroninii, belongs to this genus. He creates the new genus Heckelichthys for the two other species, C. microdon and C. vexillifer, with the latter as type species. The phylogeny of the Ichthyodectidae is studied. The systematic position of Chirocentrites and Heckelichthys is specified.
