    Isolated dental remains of pycnodont fishes are recorded from the upper Norian (Upper Triassic) of the Germanic basin for the first time. The only complete prearticular dentition differs significantly front those of other Late Triassic pycnodonts such as Brembodus and Eomesodon. However. because the prearticular dentition of Gibbodon. another Late Triassic pycnodont, is not known the new specimens are not attributed to any genus or species. Nevertheless, these are the first indubitable records of pycnodont fishes in the uppermost Triassic outside the Tethyan realm and consequently contribute to our knowledge about the diversity and distribution of Late Triassic pycnodonts.
