Abstract Based on a thorough examination of field and museum Climactichnites specimens, two species of this trace are recognized, each representing a unique behavioral variant produced by a soft-bodied animal in Late Cambrian intertidal environments. C. wilsoni represents surface-produced trails, whereas C. youngi is re-erected for burrows produced below the surface. Burrowing behavior is supported by: 1) the presence of C. youngi within, rather than on, the surface of beds; 2) the orientation… 
PALAEOBIOLOGY OF THE CLIMACTICHNITES TRACEMAKER
Abstract:  Trace fossils such as Climactichnites offer rare insights into the palaeobiology of Cambrian soft‐bodied animals, especially those that inhabited emergent sand flats and are not known from
EARLY MOLLUSCAN EVOLUTION: EVIDENCE FROM THE TRACE FOSSIL RECORD
Abstract Trace fossils extend the history of early molluscan evolution because they have a higher preservation potential in siliciclastic strata, where body fossils are rare or absent, and also
STRANDED IN UPSTATE NEW YORK: CAMBRIAN SCYPHOMEDUSAE FROM THE POTSDAM SANDSTONE
Abstract The Cambrian portion of the Potsdam Sandstone contains a suite of scyphomedusae impressions in fine-grained to medium-grained quartz arenites that outcrop on the periphery of the Adirondack
DEAD IN THEIR TRACKS—CAMBRIAN ARTHROPODS AND THEIR TRACES FROM INTERTIDAL SANDSTONES OF QUEBEC AND WISCONSIN
Abstract The large euthycarcinoid arthropod Mictomerus melochevillensis from the middle Cambrian-Furongian Potsdam Group of Quebec occurs as three-dimensional casts at the end of Cruziana- and
Morphology and taphonomy of an exceptional trackway from the Flathead Sandstone (Middle Cambrian) of Wyoming
Two sandstone slabs from the Cambrian Flathead Sandstone of Wyoming exhibit different preservational modes of an exceptionally large and unusual trackway. On the smaller slab, the trackway is a
Hermit arthropods 500 million years ago
Cambrian intertidal sandstones of North America record early excursions of large animals onto tidal flats, where continuous microbial films served as preservational agents for surface tracks. Whereas

The timing of the early invasion of the continents, the routes to the land, and the environmental breadth of the Cambrian explosion are important topics because they are at the core of our

TLDR
The trail of Climactichnites may constitute the work of an otherwise unknown phylum in the animal kingdom, and the proposed method of feeding, if correctly interpreted, is unique.
