Abstract We describe the first occurrence of the problematic fossil Gaojiashania outside China, in the Ediacaran Yudoma Group of the Siberian Platform. In both areas, Gaojiashania characterizes the lower upper Ediacaran strata and precedes the appearance of Cloudina and other skeletal fossils, which highlights its significance for the Ediacaran subdivision and correlation. Features of this fossil such as indeterminate length, the absence of a distinct growth pattern, and self-avoiding behaviour…

An assemblage of Late Precambrian macrofossils consisting of five species (Aspidella terranovica, Beltanelliformis brunsae, Nenoxites curvus, Palaeopascichnus renarius, and Suvorovella aldanica), was

A new cloudinid fossil assemblage from the terminal Ediacaran of Nevada, USA

Owing to their temporal position during the decline of the classic Ediacara biota and the appearance of the more recognizable metazoans of the Cambrian Period, the terminal Ediacaran (∼551–539 Ma)

Precambrian–Cambrian boundary interval occurrence and form of the enigmatic tubular body fossil Shaanxilithes ningqiangensis from the Lesser Himalaya of India

The affinity of the Ediacaran fossil Shaanxilithes ningqiangensis and putatively related forms has long been enigmatic; over the past few decades, interpretations ranging from trace fossils to algae

FOSSIL EVIDENCES OF LATEST NEOPROTEROZOIC GAOJIASHAN BIOTA AND THEIR CHARACTERISTICS

A divere fossil assemblage from the approximately 550Ma latest Neoproterozoic Dengying Formation of South Shaanxi, China is described in this paper. It contains tubular skeletonal fossils,

Abstract Upper Neoproterozoic successions in the North China and nearby Chaidam blocks are poorly documented. North China successions typically consist of a diamictite unit overlain by siltstone,

Horodyskia is one of the earliest known macroscopic life forms, with a fossil record dating from c. 1.4 Ga. Palaeopascichnus represents a key Ediacaran element with world-wide distribution. However,

A clearer picture of the increase in diversity and complexity can be reached by combining trace fossils into broad groups defined both on morphology and interpretation, which focuses attention on looking for similarites between Neoproterozoic and Cambrian trace fossils.

The twilight of Heliozoa and rise of Rhizaria, an emerging supergroup of amoeboid eukaryotes.

Combined small-subunit ribosomal RNA and actin sequence data for the three main groups of "Heliozoa" (Actinophryida, Centrohelida, and Desmothoracida), the heliozoan-like Sticholonche, and the radiolarian group Polycystinea provide solid evidence for the existence of the Rhizaria.
