Products description

Here is a inexpensive but relative large "Vendian Ediacara Fossil" of the species Kimberella quadrata  from the "Verkhovka Formation" of the Solza - River fossil site.
Kimberella itself is about 27 mm long.
The systematic position of the genus Kimberella is still controversial, as with almost all "Ediacaran Fossils". After the classical interpretation is Kimberella a medusa like Coelenterata. This interpretation is due more and better preserved specimens obsolete today.
Today is Kimberella associated with the molluscs with some reservation.
