Carolinae , no. Paleontologie 32; pp. Remarks : Without observation of U-plane sections, specimens appear to resemble single opening of Skolithos.

Specimens differ from Arenicolites curvatus , A. U-plane sections are much smaller and too regular to represent A. Specimens are also different from A. Type ichnospecies : Cochlichnus anguineus Hitchcock, by monotypy. Its occurrence in the upper Vendian Redkino Horizon of the Russian Platform Fedonkin, indicates that Cochlichnus rarely underlies the uppermost Precambrian Harlaniella podolica Zone of Narbonne et al. Although it has been known as a facies indicator e.

Cochlichnus has been referred to annelids lacking well-developed parapodia Hitchcock, ; Hakes, Moussa , reported that nematodes, which lack circular muscles and thus move by flexing the body in the dorsoventral plane Clark, , make sinusoidal trails similar to Cochlichnus , where mud is covered by a film of water not thicker than their body. Insect larvae can also produce similar trails under such conditions Metz, Material : Several hundred specimens in the field.

Figured specimen JITF Description : Very small, smooth, unbranched, sinusoidal trails preserved in convex hyporelief on thin mudstone beds. Diameter is 0. Amplitude of sine curve is 1. Remarks : Specimens are quite similar in size and shape to C. Keighley and Pickerill reviewed the status of nine ichnospecies of Cochlichnus and concluded that only C. Uchman et al. Type ichnospecies : Helminthopsis magna Heer, by subsequent designation Ulrich, Diagnosis : Unbranched, irregularly winding or meandering, interface burrows or trails that do not touch, cross, or loop themselves.

A maximum of one order of nonsinusoidal meandering is present. Burrow fill unstructured after Han and Pickerill, Accordingly, following Han and Pickerill and Pickerill et al. Helminthopsis has been known from the lowermost Cambrian strata of the Phycodes pedum Zone Narbonne et al. It is an eurybathic from, though more frequently reported from deepwater flysch successions Pickerill, , and is generally regarded as having been produced by polychaete annelids and possibly priapulids.

Description : One distinct specimen center in Fig. Other adjacent, loosely winding burrows on the same bedding surface may represent additional examples of this ichnospecies.

The specimen is preserved as a convex hypichnion on the base of a mudstone containing Cochlichnus anguineus. Such doubling back is not element for assignment to Cochlichnus. The irregularly meandering burrows with straight sections direct the ichnospecific assignment to H. Type ichnospecies : Palaeophycus tubularis Hall, by subsequent designation Miller, , p. Diagnosis : Straight to slightly curved to slightly undulose or flexuous, smooth or ornamented, typically lined, essentially cylindrical, predominantly horizontal structures interpreted as originally open burrows; borrow-fill typically massive, similar to host rock; where present, bifurcation is not systematic, nor does it result in swelling at the sites of branching Fillion and Pickerill, Remarks : Palaeophycus is distinguished from Planolites by having a wall and the same fill as the host rock Pemberton and Frey, Five ichnospecies have been recognized by these authors: P.

Palaeophycus is interpreted as a dwelling structure domichnion of a suspension feeder or predaceous organism Pemberton and Frey, The predaceous polychaete Glicera has been suggested as a modern analogue of the Palaeophycus tracemaker Pemberton and Frey, Systematic review of Palaeophycus was made by Keighley and Pickerill , and Buckman , who erected P.

Palaeophycus is an eurybathic facies-crossing form, probably produced by polychaete, and it has been reported from the Precambrian to Holocene Pemberton and Frey, Description : The specimens are preserved in concave epirelief on very thin mudstone covered coarse-grained sandstone. The burrows are unbranched, slightly curved, horizontal to slightly inclined, cylindrical and commonly collapsed. Burrows is about 7. Wall-lining is distinct and thin, mostly about 0. Burrow-fill is massive and similar in lithology to the enclosing host rock. Some burrows are incompletely filled and collapsed.

Burrow surface is smooth and does not display any ornamentation. Remarks : Palaeophycus tubularis is distinguished from P. Type ichnospecies : Planolites vulgaris Nicholson and Hinde, , by subsequent designation Miller, Diagnosis : Essentially cylindrical, predominatly sub horizontal but bedding-penetrative, straight to tortuous, ornamented of smooth, unlined burrows. Unbranched or non systematically branched, lacking swelling at any ramification points modified from Fillion and Pickeril, Remarks : Pemberton and Frey discussed in detail on the Planolites - Palaeophycus dilemma and systemically reviewed the two common and simple ichnogenera.

They recognized only three distinct forms, namely Planolites beverleyensis Billings , P. However, criteria suggested by them for distinguishing P. Keighly and Pickerill considered, therefore, the latter ichnospecies as a subjective junior synonym of the former, as previously suggested by Clausen and Vilhjalmsson Ichnotaxonomy of this ichnogenus has been documented in detail by Fillion and Pickerill and Keighley and Pickerill Description : Nearly straight, slightly curved, unlined, horizontal to slightly inclined burrows preserved in concave epirelief on the sandstone with ripple marks.

Trough of ripple marks is partly covered with thin mudstone.

Trace Fossils

Burrow-fill is finer-grained than surrounding host rock. Wall lining and branching is rarely observed. Burrows are less than 3. Diameter of burrows commonly varies probably due to preservation of burrows on the sandstone bed with ripple marks partly covered with thin mudstone in the trough parts. Remarks : The specimens show all the attributes to Planolites monatanus , to which they are confidently assigned. Type ichnospecies : Protovirgularia dichotoma McCoy, , by monotypy. Diagnosis : Small, plaited, unbranched, keel-like trail, mostly straight or slightly curved, more rarely sinuous, generally paired and bilaterally symmetrical, narrow wedge-shaped appendages after Han and Pickerill, Remarks : The ichnogenus Protovirgularia is a relatively commonly reported form, particularly from the Southern Upland of Scotland, from where McCoy described the type material regarded as an octocoral.

Seilacher and Seilacher erected a new ichnofamily Pelecypodichna , to which the ichnospecies of Protovirgularia as well as Lockeia James belongs and they recognized four ichnospecies of Protovirgularia , namely P. The nomenclatural history and detailed taxonomic considerations of Protovirgularia have been discussed by Seilacher and Seilacher , Han and Pickerill , and Uchman , who also described P. Description : The specimen is well preserved in concave epirelif on the surface of fine-grained grey sandstone.

It is unbranched, straight to gently curved, horizontal, and keel-like trail with maximum width of 27 mm and length of Lateral appendages are about 1. Continuous median line is about 2 mm in width and 1. Twenty appendages are observed in each side of the median line. Six small tridactyl bird tracks are preserved near the specimen on a single bedding surface. Remarks : Protovirgularia dichotoma was established by McCoy for structures that possessed a median line and associated lateral appendages. Ichnotaxonomy of P.

Type ichnospecies : Psilonichnus tubiformis Frsich, Diagnosis : Predominantly vertical, cylindrical, unlined burrows ranging from irregular shafts to crudely J-, Y- , or U- shaped structures Frey et al. Remarks : Frey et al. They grouped the ichnogenera into the unbranched burrows Skolithos and Macanopsis , sparsely branched burrows Gyrolithes , Spongeliomorpha , and Psilonichnus , and well-integrated burrow systems Thalassinoides. Psilonichnus is distinguished in J-, Y-, or U- shaped, erect components from the other sparsely branched burrows Frey et al.

Psilonichnus has been proved to be extremely useful indicators of marginal marine environments and the past sea-level positions Frey et al. Diagnosis : Psilonichnians consisting typically of gently inclined, sparsely branched to unbranched, J- or Y- shaped burrow; inclined shafts straight to slightly arcuate; branches slightly to markedly curved, not horizontal Frey et al. Description : Unbranched to Y- shaped, unlined burrows; shafts, steeply inclined to bedding, typically 5 mm in diameter and up to 4 cm or more in length.

Terminus of burrows not preserved; therefore, measured shafts length are less than the original length of shafts. Remarks : Up to now, four named ichnospecies of Psilonichnus have been currently known. They are P. Burrows from the Pleistocene of Jeju Island are identified as Psilonichnus upsilon on the basis of burrow morphology, which corresponds to diagnostic features of the ichnospecies provided by Frey et al. Psilonichnus upsilon is distinguished in inclined shapes-bearing relatively few, or no, branches from P. Jeju specimens represent the second record of Psilonichnus upsilon in Asia.

Type ichnospecies : Fucoides? Diagnosis : Unbranched, vertical or steeply inclined, cylindrical or subcylindrical, lined or unlined burrows. Walls distinct or indistinct, smooth or rough, possibly annulate; burrow fill massive; burrow diameter may vary slightly along its length after Alpert, Remarks : Alpert reviewed systematically the ichnogenus Skolithos and he recognized five valid ichnospecies , namely, Skolithos annulatus Howell , S.

Although his scheme is regarded by many ichnologists as adequate, some taxonomic problems such as overlapping nature of diameter ranges of S. Anderson and Sauvagnat described a new ichnospecies , S. Skolithos has been reported from deep marine to nonmarine, Late Precambrian to Holocene deposits Fillion and Pickerill, Gregory et al. Description : Vertical to slightly inclined, straight, cylindrical burrows. Burrows are 3 to 7 mm in diameter and up to 18 cm in length. Burrow walllining is distinct and very thin less than 0. On the horizontal bedding surface, browncolored concentric features with maximum diameter up to 50 mm, around one to five openings of burrow are distinctly observed.

The concentric features are also vertically developed around the vertical burrows. Burrow-fill is coarse-grained sandstone, which is clearly different from the lithology of the surrounding host rocks of mudstone. Annulation is commonly observed on the outer part of vertical burrows observed in vertical section. Remarks : According to Alpert who provided systematic review of Skolithos , specimens are assigned to be Skolithos linearis.

Burrows without showing downward or upward branching and changing in burrow diameter are not likely to be plant traces resembling Skolithos , which is recently documented in Quaternary and recent deposits of New Zealand and George of USA Gregory et al, Specimens are also different from plant trace resembling Skolithos in lacking hematite-cemented conical walls up to 10 or 15 cm high. Brown colored, concentric, vertical cylinder-like features developed around vertical burrow of Skolithos linearis are characteristic.

They are regarded to be not wall lining but diagenetic oxidation haloes because there is no alteration in sediment fabric Magwood, These diagenetic haloes are interpreted to be probably due to oxidation around vertical burrows by meteoric or ground water resulting these peculiar concentrically color-banded structures. Type ichnospecies : T. Diagnosis : Unwalled, essentially cylindrical, meniscate, backfilled burrows. Variably oriented in a straight, winding, curved, or sinuous pattern. Secondary successive branching may occur, but true branching is absent after Keighley and Pickerill, Ancorichnus is a burrow containing a central meniscate fill and a structured mantle Heinberg, , Beaconites is a walled meniscate burrow Keighley and Pickerill, , and Taenidium is an unwalled meniscate backfilled burrow Keighley and Pickerill Description : Horizontal to slightly inclined, unbranched, unwalled, meniscate backfilled burrows preserved in light gray mudstone.

Menisci are hemispherical, tightly packed. Meniscate fill is heterogeneous. Menisci are about 1 mm. Diameter of burrow slightly varies due to slight inclination. Burrows are 7 to 12 mm in diameter and length of burrows is up to mm. Remarks : Taenidium barretti is distinguished from other ichnospecies of Taenidium in hemispherical or deeply arcuate, tightly packed meniscate backfill Keighley and Pickerill, Taenidium barretti has been recorded from alluvial lacustrine and fluvial deposits of the Ordovician to Pleistocene Keighley and Pickerill, Jeju specimens represent the first record of Taenidium barretti from the marine shoreline deposits and the first Pleistocene record in Asia.

This activity was selected for the On the Cutting Edge Reviewed Teaching Collection This activity has received positive reviews in a peer review process involving five review categories. This page first made public: Jun 15, Summary As a capstone laboratory project for introductory historical geology, the class is divided into groups of 3 to 5 students to analyze a sedimentary rock core and associated geophysical log. The primary goal is for students to experience the thrill and excitement of scientific discovery in a project that integrates observational and interpretive skills to reconstruct Earth history.

Secondary goals include improving each student's ability to work in a group, apply critical thinking to evaluate sedimentological, paleontological, mineralogical, and geophysical observations, formulate hypotheses to explain observations, integrate observations with published scientific literature, and to synthesize and communicate ideas both in writing and in an oral presentation. End-of-the-semester laboratory project suitable for: A freshman-level introductory course in historical geology at either a 2-year or 4-year college An undergraduate- or graduate-level stratigraphy or sedimentology course Students should have completed previous laboratory or field exercises on the identification and interpretation of sedimentary rocks, sedimentary structures, and fossils.

Mechanics Lab 1 1. Lab 2 1. Students are offered a selection of photocopied research papers that can borrowed and read before the next lab session. Lab 3 1.
