No vertebrated animals more highly organised than fish were known in rocks of higher antiquity than the Permian until the year 1844, when the Apateon pedestris, Meyer, was discovered in the coal-measures of Munster-Appel in Rhenish Bavaria, and three years later, in 1847, Professor von Dechen found three other distinct species of the same family of Amphibia in the Saarbruck coal-field above alluded to.

They were of the Labyrinthodont family, and their association with the fish of the coal, of which so large a proportion are ganoids, reminds us that the living perennibranchiate amphibia of America frequent the same rivers as the ganoid Lepidostei or bony pikes.

copy
An extinct order of Amphibia, including the typical genus Labyrinthodon, and many other allied forms, from the Carboniferous, Permian, and Triassic formations.

copy
Next to the fishes come the amphibia, from the embryology of which we can also draw instructive conclusions.
play
copy
The vertebrates comprise the already mentioned classes, from the Amphioxus to man (acrania, lampreys, fishes, dipneusts, amphibia, reptiles, birds, and mammals).
play
copy
Johannes Muller classed the lancelet with the fishes, although he pointed out that the differences between this simple vertebrate and the lowest fishes are much greater than between the fishes and the amphibia.
play
copy
During this period some of the fishes began to adapt themselves to living on land, and so gave rise to the class of the amphibia.
play
copy
We find in the Carboniferous period fossilised remains of five-toed amphibia, the oldest terrestrial, air-breathing vertebrates.

copy
These amphibia increase in variety in the Permian epoch.
play
copy
The ancestors of our race during this period were at first represented by true fishes, then by dipneusts and amphibia, and finally by the earliest Amniotes, or the Protamniotes.
play
copy
We may, however, trace man's genealogical tree not only as far as the lower mammals, but much further-to the amphibia, to the shark-like primitive fishes, and, in fine, to the skull-less vertebrates that closely resembled the Amphioxus.
play
copy
But this must not be understood in the sense that the existing Amphioxus, or the sharks or amphibia of to-day, can give us any idea of the external appearance of these remote stem-forms.
play
copy
Still less must it be thought that the Amphioxus or any actual shark, or any living species of amphibia, is a real ancestral form of the higher vertebrates and man.
play
copy
They were classed by Linne with the worms, and by later zoologists, with the fishes, or the amphibia, or the molluscs.
play
copy
On the other hand, a collateral line, or rather the advancing chief line of the vertebrate stem, was developed from the earlier Ganoids, and this leads us through the group of the Dipneusta to the important division of the Amphibia.
play
copy
The vertebrate class, that thus adapted itself to breathing the atmosphere, and was developed from a branch of the Ganoids, takes the name of the Dipneusts or Dipnoa ("double-breathers"), because they retained the earlier gill-respiration along with the new pulmonary (lung) respiration, like the lowest amphibia.
play
copy
In their whole structure they form a transition from the fishes to the amphibia.
play
copy
The transitional formation between the two classes is so pronounced in the whole organisation of these remarkable animals that zoologists had a lively controversy over the question whether they were really fishes or amphibia.
play
copy
Several distinguished zoologists classed them with the amphibia, though most now associate them with the fishes.

Examples of Amphibium

Example #1
Since that period the British Museum has received from the different travellers various other species from that country.
Example #2
The length of the ankle and foot 4 4 II.
Example #3
These were described by the late Professor Goldfuss under the generic name of Archegosaurus.
Example #4
Imbricated covering of skin of Archegosaurus medius, Goldf.
Example #5
They were, probably, inhabitants of a marsh, and the large processes projecting from the vertebrae of their tail imply, according to Professor Huxley, great powers of swimming.
Example #6
In 1865, several species belonging to three different genera of the same family of perennibranchiate Batrachians were found in the coal-field of Kilkenny in bituminous shale at the junction of the coal with the underlying Stigmaria- bearing clay.
