Watsonichthyes is an extinct genus of prehistoric bony fish that lived during the Tournaisian stage of the Mississippian epoch. [1]

The Tournaisian is in the ICS geologic timescale the lowest stage or oldest age of the Mississippian, the oldest subsystem of the Carboniferous. The Tournaisian age lasted from 358.9 Ma to 346.7 Ma. It is preceded by the Famennian and is followed by the Viséan.
