Description
Original description of Woodward, 1889 [2593]:
1803. Notidanus (young), A. Wagner, Abh. k. bay. Akad. Wiss.,math.- phys. Cl. vol. ix. p. 296. 1882. Pristurus, C. Hasse, Natürl. Syst. Elasmobr., Besond. Theil, p. 2.56, pl. XXXV. figs. 46, 46.
Type. Nearly complete fish; Palaeontological Museum, Munich. A very small species, distinguished from the existing P. melanostomus by the relatively greater size of the tail. The second dorsal fin is situated above the hinder part of the anal; and the length of the tail behind the second dorsal is equal to that of the trunk in advance of this fin.
Form. & Loc. Lower Kimmeridgian (Lithograph-ic Stone): Bavaria.
33003. Plaster cast of type specimen, figured, without specific name, by C. Hasse, op. cit.; Eichstädt. The snout is indicated as being very obtuse, and, if con-firmed, this feature will necessitate a slight modification in the accepted definition of the ge-nus.
