Elegestolepis was a Shark from the Silurian and is the earliest shark known. All that has been discovered is one scale giving no clues to what the animals looked like at all.

It was named by the Karatajute-Talimaa expedition in 1977. Its fossils come from the Russian Federation specifically the Tuvan Republic.
