Definition of Term

(English) A large group containing most bony fishes; refers to the Teleostei, the highest superorder of the ray-finned bony fishes. The others are the Chondrostei and Holostei, which may be polyphyletic, so these superordinal group names, though often heard, are usually omitted from recent formal classifications. (See also: bone)
