Origin of animals backdated

First Animal Found in Ediacaran?

Stromatoveris psygmoglena is a soft bodied animal found in the Cambrian. Recently many well preserved examples have been found in China. The author of THIS ARTICLE examined them and compared them to Ediacaran fossils and declares them to be the same.

So animal origins go back further than we previously thought.

The comments below the article are worth a look.
