Ichnogenus: Planolites

Planolites is an ichnogenus found throughout the Phanerozoic. It is generally small, as 1–5 mm (0.039–0.197 in), unlined, and rarely branched, with fill that differs from the host rock. Planolites are trace fossils made during the feeding process of ancient wormlike animals.
