Devonian agglutinated polychaete tubes: all in all it's just another grain in the wall

This fossil is characterized by an agglutinated tube made of silt-sized particles forming an unusual flanged morphology that is not known from the fossil record, which suggests an early divergence of the Sedentaria clade may have occurred before the Devonian.

Biotic composition and microfacies distribution of Upper Triassic build-ups: new insights from the Lower Carnian limestone of Lesno Brdo, central Slovenia

The architecture and composition of Middle to lower Upper Triassic platforms is often obscured by dolomitization. Hence, comparatively little is known about their architectures compared to their size

Fossil polychaetes of the Lower Carnian limestone at Lesno Brdo, central Slovenia

Lower Carnian massive limestone, quarried at Lesno Brdo in central Slovenia, contains irregular lenses of limestone riddled with fossil agglutinated tubes of Terebellida (Polychaeta). The aims of

Paleoenvironmental context and paleoecological significance of unique agglutinated polychaete worm tube–ferruginous microstromatolite assemblages from the Middle Jurassic of the Southern Carpathians (Romania)

Tubular structures showing well-preserved agglutinated walls are recorded from Middle Jurassic (Bathonian-Lower Callovian) hardgrounds and condensed beds cropping out in the Southern Carpathians,

ABSTRACT Intriguing fossils encrusting oncoids and exhumed carbonate concretions are described from the Middle Jurassic (Bathonian) of Poland. The fossils, up to a few millimeters in diameter and

FORAMINIFERA USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF MIOCENE POLYCHAETE WORM TUBES, MONTEREY FORMATION, CALIFORNIA, USA

Unusual concentrations of foraminiferal tests interpreted to be the remnants of worm tubes occur in the Miocene Monterey Formation near Carmel and Mission Viejo, California. Lithostratigraphic and

Cement Proteins of the Tube-building Polychaete Phragmatopoma californica*

The mineralized tube of the sandcastle worm Phragmatopoma californica is made from exogenous mineral particles (sand, shell, etc.) glued together with a cement secreted from the “building organ” on

Calcareous tubeworms of the Phanerozoic

Morphological similarities indicate that Palaeozoic problematic tubeworms, e.g. tentaculitids, cornulitids, microconchids, trypanoporids, Anticalyptraea, and Tymbochoos, form a monophyletic group.

The origin of annelids

A novel clade of machaeridians, the Cuniculepadida, is identified, which exhibit a series of adaptations for burrowing, and is identified as a convincing body of molecular evidence that polychaetes form a paraphyletic grade and that clitellates are derived polychaETes.

Tube-worm-sediment relationships in populations of Pectinaria gouldii (Polychaeta: Pectinariidae) from Barnegat Bay, New Jersey, USA

The conical shape and increasing mass of the tube impose an upper limit to worm growth, but do not interfere with worm mobility.

Tube worms promote community change

It is concluded that not only groups of tubes, but also single polychaete tubes bioengineer their environment.
