Abstract

What are lobopodians? The lobopodians comprise more than 30 known species of extinct soft-bodied animals that resemble worms with legs. They are known from various Paleozoic (ca. 541–252 million year old) marine deposits around the world. Lobopodians originated during the Cambrian explosion (see Primer by Derek Briggs in this issue), a major diversification event in which most of the known animal groups appear for the first time in the fossil record. Lobopodians thus represent a major component of early metazoan-dominated ecosystems.
