Cambrian Soft Bodied Invertebrates I

All specimens on this page are from the Mount Simon Complex, Cambrian of Wisconsin. The fossils are all soft bodied organisms preserved as organic stains and 3 dimensional fossils in a quartzitic sandstone. The specimens have excellent preservation including structures rarely seen. Originally thought to be Pre-Cambrian these fossils are now acknowledged as being Cambrian and in some cases the last examples of their type in the fossil record. Many are still undescribed but a paper has been written/presented by the University of California.
