Kangaroo Island Excavation Reveals Two New Organisms!

The Environment Institute’s Associate Professor Diego García-Bellido (@DGarcia-Bellido) from the Sprigg Geobiology Centre
has just returned from another successful excavation of the Emu Bay Shale, the 515 million-year-old fossil site in Kangaroo Island.

This season’s dig has produced new specimens of exquisitely-preserved Anomalocaris fossil eyes, and at least two new organisms, which are awaiting scientific description. These excavations are a joint project of the University of Adelaide, with the South Australian Museum and the University of New England.
