Comparative study of microfossils from two kinds of sediments: chert intercalations (studied in thin section) and phosphorite/phosphatic carbonate (in thin section and maceration), from the upper Neoproterozoic Doushantuo phosphorites in the Wengan area, Guizhou Province, South China, shows that the phosphatized Megasphaera ornata and the chert-preserved Tianzhushania tuberifera should be regarded as representing the same taxon preserved by different mineralization processes. In phosphatized… CONTINUE READING
