Subject: Fossil fish family information
I've got an information related to discovery of the oldest fossil record of
Cepolidae (sea fish) family.
The information should be presented in the reference below, but I don't know
the exact number of the related page(s). I don't have this book and I need
some help, please.
Berg L S (1958) System der rezenten und fossilen Fischartigen und Fische.
VEB Verlag der Wissenschaften, Berlin. ??? p.
I'll be very grateful to get any additional kind of information if possible,
1. few very basic informations about fossil discovery (where, when, who)
2. the fossil drawing/ picture if was published there
3. and again, the correct pagination.
This will help me a lot in perparing of my MSc thesis.
Thank you very much in advance!
