      Emmonsaspis cambrensis (Walcott), long interpreted as a possible chordate, is shown to be a frond-like fossil with angled branches arising from the mid-line. No trace of a holdfast exists in any of the three specimens. E. cambrensis resembles a number of Ediacaran frond-like fossils, but similarities to taxa such as Pteridinium may be superficial. The Ediacara-type assemblage is named after Australia's Ediacara Hills, and consists of fossils preserved in facies of coastal lagoons and rivers. They are typically found in red gypsiferous and calcareous paleosols formed on loess and flood deposits in an arid cool temperate paleoclimate.

Although the fronds are often preserved as flattened impressions, exceptional moldic fossils preserve details of the 3D branching structure to a resolution of 30 by:

      Ediacara are a member of a modern phyla but with aberrant morphologies; possibly a proto-medusiod, annelida, or sea pen. Vendobionta Proposed by German Seilacher, this is the now-extinct non-metazoan phylum in which Ediacara allegedly would have belonged to. For over a decade, diligent excavations of complete Ediacaran surfaces from the National Heritage Listed Ediacara Fossil Site at Nilpena (herein referred to as Nilpena) in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia (see reviews in Droser et al., ; Gehling and Droser, ; Droser and Gehling, ) have uncovered a diverse assemblage of Cited by: 4.
