Elopomorpha date[edit]

The cladogram at Teleost#Internal relationships shows a divergence date of 175 mya. That can't be right; nodes further in have earlier dates (e.g. 250 mya). Plantdrew (talk) 01:50, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Clearly the experts disagree, how could that ever happen. I've removed it for now. Chiswick Chap (talk) 07:33, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Extant species?[edit]

The intro says that teleosts comprise 96% of all known fish species. Is that known extant species or ever-living species? As teleosts arose in the Triassic, well after the so-called Age of Fishes, it seems that it must be 96% of the living species, as the Devonian was long before the Triassic. Whatever the answer, this should be clarified. --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 15:45, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Yes indeed, it is referring to extant species. I have found a source and clarified the lead and added the fact to the "Diversity" section. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 19:47, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
