Cambrian period - China

Specimen: Fossil
Object: On matrix (More lots)
Scientific name: Fish-like Early Chordate - Vetulicola sp.- 5.5cm
Origin: China
Geological Period: Cambrian period
Condition: Good condition

This is an unusual specimen of a weird Cambrian animal which is said to be related to early fish. It was found in the Chengjiang Konservat Lagerstätte.

I was not able to identify the species, but the tail (if it is in fact a tail!) is clearly that of a Vetulicola. It may be something new entirely or it just happened to become preserved as a fossil in an unusual way.

Found near Kunming, Yunnan province, China in the Heilinpu formation of the Maotianshan Shales.

The fossil is about 5.5 cm long and sits on a 2x8x12cm matrix.
