Spriggina by NTamura Spriggina by NTamura
Spriggina floundersi, another enigmatic animal from the Ediacaran fauna. Possibly an early arthropod of some sort...

This is neat! The first really realistic rendition of Spriggina I've seen, anyways.

It's either an arthropod, or a proarticulatan related to Yorgia.
As much as I want to assume that Spriggina is an arthropod, whenever I see well-preserved fossils, I see a hint of the protarticulatan "glide symmetry."

Yeah, the arthropod affinity is not convincing

Are you going to do Parvancorina, next? If so, do you want some information on the White Sea species, in addition to P. minchami?

Not planned but I can do it if you like... Have to read more about it though.
