Abstract. The kutorginates are commonly the most abundant rhynchonelliform brachiopod found in the early Cambrian; they are also some of the oldest known rhynchonelliforms, first appearing in the Unnamed Series 2 (Atdabanian equivalent) and becoming extinct sometime in Cambrian Series 3 (Amgaian equivalent). Moreover, kutorginates are the first known member of the rhynchonelliforms for which we have a detailed knowledge of their soft-part anatomy, including the lophophore, digestive tract… 

Hyoliths with pedicles illuminate the origin of the brachiopod body plan

A new orthothecide hyolith from the Chengjiang Lagerstätte (Cambrian Series 2 Stage 3) is described, which exhibits a non-mineralized attachment structure that strikingly resembles the brachiopod pedicle—the first report of a peduncular organ in hyoliths.

Earliest ontogeny of early Cambrian acrotretoid brachiopods — first evidence for metamorphosis and its implications

The primary larval body plan of acrotretoid Eohadrotreta is now known to have been shared with most early linguliforms and their relatives and probably first evolved in stem group brachiopods with subsequent heterochronic changes.

Early Cambrian (Stage 4) brachiopods from the Shipai Formation in the Three Gorges area of South China

Abstract. Diverse and abundant fossil taxa have been described in the lower Cambrian Shipai Formation in the Three Gorges area of Hubei Province, South China, but the taxonomy and diversity of the

Palaeobiogeography of the family Nisusiidae (Cambrian rhynchonelliform brachiopods) using the ‘area‐transition count’ method and systematic revision of Korean species

Nisusiidae is a rhynchonelliform brachiopod family that was widely distributed in low‐latitude regions during the middle Cambrian (Stage 3 of Series 2 to the Drumian Stage of the Miaolingian Series).

Cambrian rhynchonelliform nisusioid brachiopods: phylogeny and distribution

A comprehensive review and phylogenetic analysis of genera and species presently assigned to the rhynchonelliform superfamily Nisusioidea and family Nisusiidae suggests that this short‐lived but

New evolutionary and ecological advances in deciphering the Cambrian explosion of animal life

The Cambrian explosion represents the most profound animal diversification event in Earth history. This astonishing evolutionary milieu produced arthropods with complex compound eyes (Paterson et

RHYNCHONELLIFORMEAN BRACHIOPODS WITH SOFT‐TISSUE PRESERVATION FROM THE EARLY CAMBRIAN CHENGJIANG LAGERSTÄTTE OF SOUTH CHINA

Abstract:  Cosmopolitan kutorginates, the most abundant Early Cambrian rhynchonelliformean brachiopods, became extinct at the end of the Middle Cambrian. Consequently, any information concerning the

The exceptionally preserved Early Cambrian stem rhynchonelliform brachiopod Longtancunella and its implications

New exceptionally preserved specimens show that the pedicle of Longtancunella cannot be considered homologous with the pedicles in crown Rhyncho-nelliformea or Linguliformea, and is proposed to represent a soft-shelled stemrhynchonelliform brachiopod with chileate features, thus demonstrating for the first timethat the ch Chileate-like umbonal perforation functions as a pedicle opening.

It is assumed that brachiopods were the first benthic metazoan that achieved their success in ecological stratification and tiering complexity by late Atdabanian.

THE EVOLUTIONARY SIGNIFICANCE OF NISUSIA SULCATA, AN EARLY ARTICULATE BRACHIOPOD

It now appears probable that some early articulates inherited a functional anus and that teeth and sockets, although acquired quickly in the evolution of the class, were absent in some of its earliest members.

Brachiopods hitching a ride: an early case of commensalism in the middle Cambrian Burgess Shale

This association of Nisusia with the motile Wiwaxia is interpreted as the oldest unambiguous example of a facultative ectosymbiosis between a sessile organism and a mobile benthic animal in the fossil record, and suggests that symbiotic associations were already well established and diversified by the “middle” Cambrian.

Abstract Brachiopods of the order Chileida have been recorded previously only from rocks of early to mid-Cambrian age (Botomian–Amgaian). They are typified by having a calcareous strophic shell with
