Not just lungfish! Lungs are an autapomorphy of Osteichthyes as a whole.
*Latimeria* has filled them with fat, and the sturgeons + paddlefish and most
teleosts have turned them into a swimbladder that sometimes even loses its
connection to the esophagus.
Swimbladders have evolved from lungs, not the other way around.
