Caption: Early invertebrate. Computer artwork of Vetustovermis planus, an invertebrate from the Early Cambrian Period, about 525 million years ago, swimming. A V. planus fossil, found in Anning, China, had a flattened body, horizontal fins and eyes on stalks. It has characteristics of annelids, molluscs and arthropods and could be an early example of any of these phyla.
