Nemiana simplex Precambrian Ediacaran Fossil Replica

Nemiana simplex

Precambrian Ediacaran Fossil

620 million years old

Nemiana are extremely old enigmatic fossils of the Ediacaran fauna. Some believe they are jellyfish while others say sea anemone. This is a replica plate of Nemiana simplex that was found in Novodnestrovsky Quarry, Podolia, Ukraine. Nemiana is one of the simplest of all Vendia fossils, and is difficult to interpret. It seems to be an impression of a sac-like body. Similar impressions in later rocks and in modern sediments are attributed to sea anemones; unlike most sea anemones Nemiana has no tentacles, although occasionally central markings are found that could represent a mouth. All of these specimens display the classic Nemiana features; beautifully rounded with a puffed-up center. The detail of these fossils is quite striking, for a polyp! These distinct fossils are well showcased on a block of very fine-grained sandstone. This is a museum quality multiple example of this strange, enigmatic Precambrian organism.
