|Fossil of Cladocyclus|
Cladocyclus (derived from the Greek κλάδος/kládos ("branch") and κύκλος/kýklos ("circle")) is an extinct genus of Ichthyodectidae. It was a predatory fish of about 1.20 metres (3.9 ft) in length, found in the Albian Romualdo and Crato Formations of the Araripe Basin in northeastern Brazil. A new species, Cladocyclus pankowskii, was discovered in the Cenomanian Akfabou Formation of Morocco in 2007, and in the Upper Plattenkalk of Italy.
