1.7" Soft-Bodied Marrellomorph (Furca) - Fezouata Formation

Here’s a rare and well preserved marrellomorph (Furca mauretanica) from the Upper Fezouata Formation (Floian stage) of Morocco dated 477.7 ± 1.4 to 470.0 mya - Furca mauretanica, was a soft bodied “marrellomorph” arthropod - somewhat similar to the much more common fossil, Marrella splendens, from the middle Cambrian (Burgess Shale) of Canada. It is also related to Mimetaster hexagonalis from the Devonian (Bundenbach Slates) of Germany.
