In the late 1980s/early 1990s, John S. Peel and Simon Conway Morris discovered a fossil that they tentatively called ‘Grasper.’ At the time, they weren’t sure whether it might have been an annelid, arthropod, or even a lobopod. I couldn’t find a scientific name for it in the article.
Is there any more recent info on this critter?
[I’ve been going thru old science magazines before trashing them, and seeing what follow-ups there might be on some stories. This particular article referred to it as an ‘evolutionary oddball.’]
