My father, a mechanic for most of his working life, would have explained the issue thusly:
You didn't ask us to list everything wrong with this paragraph, and anything that might go wrong in the future. You asked, should the paragraph be making this noise when I make sharp right turns? Now if, when we had the hood up and were poking around, we'd noticed the odd semi-fish lying around, we might have mentioned it as a possible issue for the future (semi-fishes having the potential to clog the air filter). This, however would depend upon us, a) noticing an issue that we weren't looking for in the first place, and b) bringing up a problem other that the one we were asked to investigate, which tends to make customers suspicious and defensive.
As for me, I wasn't looking for a semi-fish and didn't notice one. Amphia-what now?

As Eddie Izzard himself once said, "one nano-millimeter between fantastically hot and fuckin' freezing."

So, tell us, Scott, in 50 words or less, just how important were missing links in the late 19th century? How much energy were expended in search thereof? How many hands were wrung over the missing? Etc.

If you had followed the link in my comment, the lyrics there would have made it clear that the amphioxus was "an important fish-type-thing."

I can't say I'm not disappointed.
