Coccoliths! They were first observed by Ehrenberg from the chalk of Rugen  -
and more generally his work on microfossils resulted in numerous marine
micro-organisms being recorded first from fossil specimens.

Dear all,
Latimeria and Metasequoia are prime examples of taxa known as fossils before
being found extant. What other examples are out there in the literature?
Thanks,
Carl
