This is a short note redescribing material from the Middle Triassic of Germany that is referable to the enigmatic vertebrate taxon Colognathus, which has been considered everything from a 'fish' to and archosauromorph reptile. Unfortunately the new material does not clarify the systematic position of Colognathus, but does represent a temporal and geographic extension.
