An ARC Discovery Projects grant has assisted researchers at the Australian National University in discovering a new species of ancient fish. The researchers have unearthed the largest fossilised lobe-finned fish skull ever found in rocks of Devonian age. The fossils were found during an excavation of 360 million-year-old rock near Eden on the NSW South Coast.
