New material of Eldenosteus arizonensis from the Upper Devonian Martin Formation of Mt. Elden, northern Arizona allows a more complete description of the body armor and the hitherto unknown skull. The new reconstruction verifies the position of Eldenosteus as a coccosteomorph arthrodire, and shows its affinity with the Torosteidae (=Plourdosteidae).
