    School of Earth Sciences and Resources, China University of Geosciences, Beijing 100083, China
    Nature 430:422-8. 2004
    ..They appear to have similarities not only to the vetulicolians but also to the homalozoans, a bizarre group of primitive echinoderms whose phylogenetic position has been highly controversial...
  2. pmc Evidence for gill slits and a pharynx in Cambrian vetulicolians: implications for the early evolution of deuterostomes
    Qiang Ou
    Early Life Evolution Laboratory, School of Earth Sciences and Resources, China University of Geosciences, Beijing 100083, China
    BMC Biol 10:81. 2012
    ..Establishing the homology of these structures is central to resolving where vetulicolians sit in metazoan phylogeny...

    Degan Shu
    Early Life Institute and Department of Geology, Northwest University, Xi an 710069, China
    Science 299:1380-4. 2003
    ..No evidence was found for the chordate-like structures that have been described in other yunnanozoans. We propose that yunnanozoans are stem-group deuterostomes, allied to the vetulicolians...
  5. ncbi request reprint Lower Cambrian vendobionts from China and early diploblast evolution
    D G Shu
    Early Life Institute and Key Laboratory of Continental Dynamics, Northwest University, Xi an 710069, China
    Science 312:731-4. 2006
    ..Therefore, this finding has important implications for the early evolution of this phylum and related diploblasts, some of which independently evolved a frondose habit...

    Early Life Institute and Key Laboratory of Continental Dynamics, Northwest University, Xi an 710069, People s Republic of China
    Proc Biol Sci 277:165-74. 2010
    ..Moreover, in the latter case we present new data to indicate that the yunnanozoans are unlikely to be any sort of chordate...

    D G Shu
    Early Life Institute and Department of Geology, Northwest University, Xi an, China
    Nature 414:419-24. 2001
    ..Several features, notably a series of gill slits, suggest that this group can throw light on an early stage of deuterostome diversification...

    D G Shu
    Early Life Institute and Department of Geology, Northwest University, Xi an
    Nature 411:472-3. 2001
    ..Here we report a probable tunicate Cheungkongella ancestralis from the Chengjiang fauna. It resembles the extant ascidian tunicate genus Styela whose morphology could be useful in understanding the origin of the vertebrates...
