Constraining the origin of animal groups is allowed, to some extent, by discoveries of Cambrian Lagerstätten that preserve both mineralizing and nonmineralizing organisms. A new species is reported here of the Cambrian arthropod Skania, which bears an exoskeleton that shares homologies with the Neoproterozoic (Ediacaran) organism Parvancorina and firmly establishes a Precambrian root for arthropods. A new monophyletic group, Parvancorinomorpha, is proposed as the first clade within the… Expand
CAMBRIAN NARAOIIDS (ARTHROPODA): MORPHOLOGY, ONTOGENY, SYSTEMATICS, AND EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS
Abstract Naraoiids, defined as lightly sclerotized arthropods with a dimidiate tergum of two sclerites separated by a single transverse articulation, have been found in the Cambrian and Silurian.Expand
An acercostracan marrellomorph (Euarthropoda) from the Lower Ordovician of Morocco
TLDR
The similarities between the ventral spinose carapace doublure of E. hrungnir and the mediolateral spines of marrellid marrellomorphs further support claims that the dorsal shield of acercostracans evolved from the fusion of spinose anlagen, akin to the formation of the carapACE of crustaceans.

Origins and early evolution of arthropods
TLDR
Phylogenomics reconstructs an arthropod tree in which a monophyletic Arthropoda splits into Pycnogonida +-Euchelicerata and Myriapoda + Pancrustacea, and a sister group relationship between Onychophora and Arthropod is endorsed by transcriptomics and microRNAs. Expand
Rheotaxis in the Ediacaran epibenthic organism Parvancorina from South Australia
TLDR
Taphonomic and morphological evidence suggests that the preferred orientations of Parvancorina individuals are not the result of passive current alignment, but represent a rheotactic response at some stage during their life cycle. Expand
Nektaspid arthropods from the Lower Cambrian Emu Bay Shale Lagerstätte, South Australia, with a reassessment of lamellipedian relationships
The lower Cambrian Emu Bay Shale on Kanga- roo Island, South Australia, contains the only known Cambrian Burgess Shale-type biota in Australia. Two new lamellipedian arthropods, Emucaris fava gen. etExpand
Biogeography and the Cambrian radiation of arachnomorph arthropods
Biogeographic patterns in primarily Cambrian arachnomorph taxa are investigated using a recently constructed phylogenetic hypothesis in order to explore the biogeographic context of the CambrianExpand
New Finds of Skeletal Fossils in the Terminal Neoproterozoic of the Siberian Platform and Spain
A current paradigm accepts the presence of weakly biomineralized animals only, barely above a low metazoan grade of organization in the terminal Neoproterozoic (Ediacaran), and a later, earlyExpand
Palaeoecology of the trace fossil Gordia and its interaction with nonmineralizing taxa from the early Middle Cambrian Kaili Biota, Guizhou province, South China
TLDR
Gordia makers, possibly priapulids, accessed buried carcasses by burrowing, then exploited them by deposit feeding the nutrient-rich sediments immediately above or below the planes of Pararotadiscus discs and bivalved arthropod carapaces, including Tuzoia, Canadaspis, and Waptia. Expand

Phylogenetic Hypotheses of the Relationships of Arthropods to Precambrian and Cambrian Problematic Fossil Taxa
TLDR
A morphological cladistic analysis of seven Vendian "arthropodlike" taxa compared with 21 representative Cambrian arthropods, lobopods, and weird wonders finds no compelling reason to accept the hypothesis that the Vendian organisms included here are not metazoans. Expand
The phylogeny of arachnomorph arthropods and the origin of the Chelicerata
TLDR
The present study provides a detailed discussion of primary hypotheses of homology and includes a more complete range of terminal taxa than previous analyses, and provides the first convincing synapomorphies for the Arachnomorpha. Expand
The origin of animal phyla and the new phylum Procoelomata
TLDR
Since protostomian features such as a ciliated locomotory sole and a pelagic larva with ciliary bands are widely distributed in branches of the phylogenetic tree, they must have been present in the stem of the tree and helps explain how segmentation, oligomery and non-segmentation could evolve repeatedly in derived groups.

A NEW LATE SILURIAN (PRIDOLIAN) NARAOIID (EUARTHROPODA: NEKTASPIDA) FROM THE BERTIE FORMATION OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO, CANADA—DELAYED FALLOUT FROM THE CAMBRIAN EXPLOSION
Abstract The discovery of a new naraoiid nektaspid in the Upper Silurian (Pridolian) of southeastern Ontario significantly extends the range of this unusual group. Nektaspids are nonmineralizedExpand
Through a glass darkly: taxonomy, phylogeny, and biostratigraphy of the Olenellina
TLDR
Biostratigraphic and biogeographic analysis of the Olenellina suggests increasing geographic isolation of Laurentia during Early Cambrian time and that LaurentianOlenellidae are mostly younger than the Olanellina of the other Cambrian continents. Expand
Reconsideration of the supposed naraoiid larva from the Early Cambrian Chengjiang Lagerstätte, South China
The Chengjiang Lagerstatte in the Lower Cambrian of South China yields a small, larva-like arthropod, which was considered to be a protaspis of naraoiids by many authors. The discovery of a largeExpand
Anomalocaris predation on nonmineralized and mineralized trilobites
TLDR
Variation in the frontal appendages of anomalocaridids indicates that niche partitioning within the genus was well established by the late Early Cambrian and allows durophagous predation on nonbiomineralized individuals. Expand
Composition and preservation of the Chengjiang fauna –a Lower Cambrian soft‐bodied biota
The Lower Cambrian Chengjiang fauna is reviewed and shown to be closely comparable with the younger Burgess Shale fauna. but with various differences in detail. A diverse group of more or lessExpand
A uniquely preserved Ediacaran fossil with direct evidence for a quilted bodyplan.
TLDR
An Ediacara form, uniquely preserved in situ and in three dimensions with its organic walls cast by early diagenetic calcite, from bituminous limestone of the 551- to 542-mega-annum Dengying Formation of South China is reported, which probably lived procumbently at or near the water-sediment interface and shows evidence for substrate utilization.

Diversification of the Metazoa: Ediacarans, colonies, and the origin of eumetazoan complexity by nested modularity
TLDR
It is argued that the Ediacarans constitute a broad, megascopic, paraphyletic grade of organization which overlaps the stem groups (and perhaps some crown groups) of the Porifera, Ctenophora, Cnidaria and Bilateria, and suggests that they were fundamentally colonial organisms. Expand
