Ivesheadia, Ediacaran Fauna

Ivesheadia sp. is a medusiform Vendozoan possibly. but Bruce Stinchcomb said it probably has not yet been assigned to a genus. It is safe to say it is a Medusiform Vendozoan Ediacaran (=Vendian) period of Precambrian Eon, from Mistaken Point Formation, 565 +- 3 Ma., Mistaken Point, Cape Race, Newfoundland.

The Vendian marks the first appearance of a group of large fossils collectively known as the "Vendian biota" or "Ediacara fauna." The question of what these fossils are is still not settled to everyone's satisfaction; at various times they have been considered algae, lichens, giant protozoans, or even a separate kingdom of life unrelated to anything living today. Some of these fossils are simple blobs that are hard to interpret and could represent almost anything. Some are most like cnidarians, worms, or soft-bodied relatives of the arthropods. Others are less easy to interpret and may belong to extinct phyla. But besides the fossils of soft bodies, Vendian rocks contain trace fossils, probably made by wormlike animals slithering over mud.
