MATERIALS AND METHODS
The holotype PIMUZ T4763 and the referred specimen PIMUZ T58 from the Upper Besano Formation ('Obere Grenzbitumenzone'; Anisian/Ladinian boundary) of Monte San Giorgio, both presumably adult specimens (Figure 2) and
the only material of Cyamodus hildegardis showing largely articulated postcranial armour were reinvestigated. Data from the juvenile specimen MSNM V458 from the "Scisti Bituminosi" (='Grenzbitumenzone') of Pogliana near Besano, Lombardy, previously described and pictured by
1992) were taken into account as well, although the armour is yet in an early stage of development (Figure 3). The PIMUZ material was further compared to the published accounts on the postcranium of adult specimens of Psephoderma alpinum (Pinna and Nosotti 1989;
Renesto and Tintori 1995;
