Fossil updates :: New cell form
We have uncovered a new novel cell form in the Brooklyn dig. These seem to be made up of approximately half the cell form of the former cellulose vertebrae found a couple weeks ago. The cells have a spiny protuberance that realigns the mass contained within the quad-lobed cell-form. These images are currently only from deep scanning x-ray microscopy and are several hundred feet beneath the previous sample. We believe this may be an earlier proto-form of the previously discovered organism, perhaps a more autonomous variation with increased individual motility due to the spine like appendage that may have been movable at its base. We hope to reach this level in a few months so that we can fully examine these forms and determine their evolutionary connection to the cellulose calcification in higher strata.
