Spirograptus Silurian Graptolite Fossil. Spirograptus turriculatus. Phylum Hemichordata, Graptolithina. Geological Time: Early Silurian, Late Llandovery Stage ( million years ago). Size: 10 mm.   Medusaegraptus mirabilis Ruedemann was originally described as a dendroid graptolite and is currently listed in the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology among graptolites incertae sedis. Recently, several localities yielding abundant M. mirabilis were discovered, prompting renewed interest in the taxonomic affinities of this species. Based on a study of the morphology and paleoecology of M Cited by: ‘Many dendroid colonies in lower Paleozoic trepostomes developed narrow exozones of young presumably feeding autozooids in cycles that covered growing branch tips.’ ‘The tiny conical shells known as dacryoconarids were also abundant and evolving rapidly at this time, but only a few dendroid graptoloids remained from the Silurian faunas.’. The graptolites which have few branches were derived from the dendroid graptolites at the beginning of the Ordovician period. This latter type (the graptoloidea) were planktonic and were successful and prolific until the early part of the Devonian period when they died out, to be survived by the more primitive dendroid graptolites.

The Hemichordata is a phylum of worm-shaped marine deuterostome animals, generally considered the sister group of the date back to the Lower or Middle Cambrian and include an important class of fossils called graptolites, most of which became extinct in the Carboniferous.. Living hemichordates are a phylum with two living classes: the enteropneusts and the m: Animalia.
