Abstract
    The study of the otoliths from the Sallomacian coquinas of Orthez and Sallespisse yielded 40 teleostean fish species of which two are new to science: Ilisha nijsseni and Diplodus kaerrerae. Among these, at least 8 are still living or very near to extant species.The association is dominated by a neritic shallow water fauna, much comparable to the extant fauna of the west-african coast between the Canary Islands and Senegal. The fossil species Brachydeuterus latior, Dentex (Polysteganus) aff. gregarius and Umbrina pyrenaica of the Sallomacian of Aquitaine are considered vicariants of the extant west-african species Brachydeuterus auritus, Dentex (Polysteganus) maroccanus and Umbrina cirrhosa.No attempt was made to interpret the fauna biostratigraphically, because the faunas of the underlying and overlying strata are still unknown.
