Evolutionary relationships within the Avalonian Ediacara biota: new insights from laser analysis

Abstract:

We report new high-resolution laser scanning of the type material for the earliest, complex Ediacaran genera Charnia, Bradgatia, Charniodiscus and Ivesheadia from Charnwood, UK, and compare these with Beothukis mistakensis gen. et sp. nov. and the recently described taxa Charnia wardi, Charnia antecedens and Fractofusus spp. from broadly coeval strata in Newfoundland. We use the laser and other techniques to map the similarities and differences in morphology between these Ediacaran rangeomorp...
