Paraechinocaris punctataDescription: The Phyllocarida were a diverse component of the Devonian arthropod fauna, one that was only locally abundant. Their fossil record extends back to the Cambrian, with examples of Canadaspis known from the Chengjiang Fauna, Burgess Shale, and most recently from Utah (see my other offerings for examples). This plate shows a pair of examples of Paraechinocaris punctata, along with numerous shelled creatures from the Middle Devonian seafloor of New York.
