Invertebrate Trace Fossils
Invertebrate trace fossils include thin burrow tracks, various examples of social insect colonies, the ichnites (tracks) of Octopodichnus (spiders) and Paleohelcura (scorpions), organic trails, gyrochorte trails and perhaps crustaceans (crayfish)?
Burrows at Waterhole Canyon, Page, Arizona. According to Rubin and Hunter, USGS, the
corkscrew burrows resemble the borrows of some modern crustaceans. I assume they mean
some type of crayfish but it is hard to understand their occurrence with the present day image of
the Navajo Sandstone ecosystem.
Worms? Ants? Termites or what? Note that the burrows
start down at the cyclic crossbedding boundaries.
These burrows may have been created each year
during the rainy season?
