Abstract
    Remains from the Upper Devonian (Famennian) of Belgium attributed to an early 'amphibian' during the nineteenth century are reviewed. This putative tetrapod material is identified here as a rhynchodipterid lungfish, possibly Soederberghia, a genus previously known from the Upper Devonian of East Greenland, Pennsylvania, and Australia. Newly discovered material from Belgium is also attributed to this large, cosmopolitan lungfish genus. Remains attributed to Yarvikia, another long-snouted dipnoan from East Greenland, have also been recovered from Famennian strata in Belgium. These occurrences provide additional evidence for paleobiogeographical links between Greenland and the central southern coast of the Euramerican continent during the Late Devonian.
