The “modern era” classification of fishes is considered by many to begin in with the publication of a provisional classification of teleosts based on “phyletic thinking”. Prior to this work, the most general classification in use had been proposed by LS Berg [ 7 ], from which the endings of modern orders (“-formes”) were by: COMPARATIVE OSTEOLOGY OF THE FISHES OF THE FAMILY LEIOGNATHIDAE PART I: OSTEOLOGY P.
