The Devonian is a geologic period and system of the Paleozoic Era spanning from 416 to 359.2 ẹgbẹgbẹ̀rún ọdún sẹ́yìn (ICS, 2004,[5] chart). It is named after Devon, England, where rocks from this period were first studied.

During the Devonian Period the pectoral and pelvic fins of lobe-finned fish evolved into legs[6] as they started to walk on land as tetrapods around 397 Ma.[7] Various terrestrial arthropods also became well-established.
