Concerning V's Deuterostome Heritage[edit]

In the following article the authors describe Skeemella clavula from the Middle Cambrian Pierson Cove Formation of the Drum Mountains of Utah. It is similar to vetulicolians but also has arthropod characteristics, which they claim casts new doubt on the deuterostome affinity of vetulicolians.

Inclusion of Yunnanozoa[edit]

Should we adjust the taxobox to mention the possible inclusion of the Yunnnanozoa, or no? Also, I thought they were related to hemichordates.--Mr Fink 17:37, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

The hypothesis is that Yunnanozoans are related to, not part of, Vetulicolia. In any case, the classifications remain speculative and contentious. -- Donald Albury 13:00, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
Indeed. I think this article may be best structured to first detail the 'facts' (i.e. their morphology, perhaps ecology) then the more dubious business of their taxonomy. I might get onto it it now... Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 19:17, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Polished up References Section[edit]

I made is consistent in format, not to mention consistently actually referenced in the Article. You're welcome. :-) Seriously, though, let's not let it get sloppy like it was again. The Mysterious El Willstro (talk) 06:38, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
