    • From the sediments of the Lower Qinglong Formation, a number of species (Plesioperleidus, Zhangina, Suis, Jurongia, Quingshania, Peia .. ) have been described, which are difficult to distinguish at first sight and are usually traded either as "Plesioperleidus" or as "Lepidotes".


      Diagnosis for Zhangina jiangsuensis Qian et al., 1997: Rather cylindrical body and moderate size. Maxilla relatively slender, length of its post-orbital part approximately 1/ 3 of the maxillary length. Scales smooth, rhombic, and fairly thick. Snout bluntly rounded, obtusely conical teeth.
