Examples of "brindabellaspis"
Fossils, including members of the Acanthothoracid placoderm fish family Weejasperaspididae, the primitive placoderm "Brindabellaspis stensioi" and the prehistoric lungfish, "Dipnorhynchus cathlesae", have been found in the area.
Brindabellaspis stensioi ("Erik Stensiö's Brindabella Ranges Shield") is a flat-snouted placoderm from the Early Devonian of the Taemas-Wee Jasper reef in Australia. When it was first discovered in 1980, it was originally regarded as a Weejasperaspid acanthothoracid due to anatomical similarities with the other species found at the reef.
The placoderm "Brindabellaspis stensioi" was once regarded as a weejasperaspid because of the similarities between its dermal plates to the other weejasperaspids. Even before it was split off into its own order, it stood out from the others because of its long, pointed snout. French paleontologist Phillipe Janvier placed "B. stensioi" in its own order, Brindabellaspida, because of how the internal anatomy of the braincase resembled more like those of osteostracans or galeaspids than those of other placoderms.
