Recognising moulting behaviour in trilobites by examining morphology, development, and preservation: Comment on Błażejowski et al. 2015

Abstract:

A 365 million year-old trilobite moult-carcass assemblage was described by Błażejowski et al. (2015) as the oldest direct evidence of moulting in the arthropod fossil record. Unfortunately, their suppositions are insufficiently supported by the data provided. Instead, the morphology, configuration, and preservational context of the highly fossiliferous locality (Kowala Quarry, Poland) suggest that the specimen consists of two overlapping, queued carcasses. The wider fossil record of moulting ...
