Phosphatized early Cambrian archaeocyaths and small shelly fossils (SSFs) of southwestern Mongolia

Abstract:

Archaeocyaths are an enigmatic group of calcifying sponges prevalent in early Cambrian (Terreneuvian to Series 2) successions around the world and preserved predominantly in reefal buildups, but also in adjacent reworked deposits. Here we report exceptionally preserved phosphatized archaeocyaths and small shelly fossils from phosphatized reef flank deposits at the top of the Salaagol Formation of southwestern Mongolia.
