Eldonia berbera, fossil jellyfish
6.75" ON 8" MATRIX
CLASS: Misc. Invertebrates
This specimen of Eldonia is from the lower Devonian of Alnif, Morocco.
Eldonia is a great example of a problematic fossil organism. Specimens are preserved as a nearly flat impression. Distinct strands radiating from the center are interpreted as radial canals on both the ventral and dorsal surface. There is still considerable debate among paleontologist as to whether they are jellyfish or some other soft-bodied animal.
