CIRCULICHNIS LEOMONTI, A NEW ICHNOSPECIES FROM THE LATE CAMBRIAN OF TEXAS
Circulichnis is a well-known ichnogenus demonstrating broad stratigraphic and geographic distribution with known habitats spanning from deep-marine to terrestrial environments. A recent discovery in Central Texas demonstrates a much larger early member of this ichnogenus. The findings presented herein express a larger trace string width exceeding the average for this ichnogenus. This expansion in morphometric parameters emphasizes the importance of overall dimensions in ichnospecies descriptions in concert with descriptive taxonomy.
