The first fossilised scraps of Hurdia were discovered in 1912. These were followed by further body parts that were so varied and unusual that they were incorrectly classified as either jellyfish, sea cucumbers or shrimp-like crustaceans [ The... “But this structure in Hurdia is empty and does not cover or protect the rest of the body,” says Daley.
