Clack et al. 27 resulting from heterochronic processes such as paedomorphosis (Bemis 1984; Joss and Johanson 2006). This may explain some of these observed sequential changes, but does not explain the gradual but complete limitation towards the ridged tooth plate pattern from the varied dental morphologies seen in early forms. The presence of substantially ossified ribs in many Carboniferous lungfish taxa suggests a delay in the trend towards reduction in ossification seen in the rest of the postcranial skeleton.

It is the most completely preserved British Carboniferous lungfish and shows a postcranial skeleton that seems to demonstrate a dorsal fin fused with a diphycercal caudal fin, and no independent anal fin. U. splendens is known from remains of the skull roof and exhibits a unique form of dermal ornament, more akin to that of tetrapods than lungfish. There seems to be relatively little support for the union of this with another species, U. lobatus, within the same genus and it is desirable that the taxonomy of this genus be addressed.
