Ray-finned fishes are in Actinopterygii. The only sarcopterygiine "fishes" are lungfishes and the coelacanth. So this email is OT, in my judgment.

Anyhow, just because fishes and frogs share the same habitat doesn't make this email list a forum for anything herpetological or environmental in general.

(Egads, I hate generating more email about an email that shouldn't have been posted in the first place.)
