MORRIS, S. A new metazoan from the Cambrian Burgess Shale of British Columbia. Palaeontology, 20, 3, – Opabinia regalis is an extinct, stem group arthropod found in the Middle Cambrian Burgess Shale Lagerstätte of British Columbia, Canada. It flourished from million years ago to million years ago during the Cambrian Period of the Paleozoic Era.

Burgess Shale-type faunas provide unique insights into the Cambrian “explosion”. Their degree of representativeness of Cambrian marine life in general is, however, less easy to establish. One line of evidence is to consider only the skeletal component of a Burgess Shale-type fauna and compare that with a typical Cambrian assemblage. This paper describes a new species of helcionelloid. - Canadaspis | Burgess Shale Geoscience Foundation #arthropods #marine #arthropods, #Arthropod #pre Güvende ve sağlıklı kalın.

  By preserving delicate structures and tissues unlikely to fossilize under normal circumstances, deposits such as British Columbia’s Burgess Shale provide a startling record of the rapid diversification of early complex life — the so-called Cambrian Explosion. How this occurred has remained enigmatic. Largest Assemblage of Cambrian Fossils Since Discovered in British Columbia. Much of what we know about the diversification of body plans that happened starting million years ago.
