Argh. The tristichopterids *Canowindra* and *Cabonnichthys* come immediately to 
mind. (*Eusthenopteron* is also a tristichopterid.)

BTW, I find it interesting how the "Science Reporter" still thinks in 
categories from... if ever, then the early 20th century. Per Ahlberg isn't "a 
leading Swedish paleontologist"; there is no such thing! He's one of the 
_world's_ top specialists in Devonian and Early Carboniferous tetrapodomorphs. 
Countries don't do their own isolated science.
