Drifting organisms in the Precambrian sea

January 1, 1966

Drag marks in the Upper Precambrian Winnall Beds of central Australia were made by semibuoyant flexible objects at least 15 centimeters long, which presumably were algae. This find extends the range of such marks into the Precambrian era and supplements the discovery of microflora in the same sedimentary sequence.
