|Species:||† J. decora|
Liu et al., 2006
Jianshanopodia decora is a Cambrian lobopod. Its frontal, grasping appendages bear wedge-shaped plates. Its limbs branch, instead of being tipped with claws as many lobopods' are. It has a sediment-filled gut surrounded by serially repeated diverticulae. It is thought to have sucked up prey with its short 'trunk'. It mainly crawled on the sea floor, but could swim when necessary.
