Bondonella typicaDescription: This plate displays a fine example of a member of the order Redlichiida known as Bondonella typica. Coming from the Issafen Formation deposits of Morocco, it is firmly placed in the Early Cambrian. First described over 60 years ago as a member of the genus Neltneria, a revision of the family Neltneriidae in 1993 led to the erection of a second genus: Bondonella. Also see the other member of the genus from the locality, Bondonella szduyi.
