The previous week was particularly rich in descriptions of new invertebrate fossil species and of new microfossils. The new species reported this week come from Morocco, USA, China, Italy, France, Spain, Canada, Myanmar and Australia. A polychaete, Websteroprion armstrongi gen. et sp. nov., from the Lower-Middle Devonian of Ontario, Canada, reported in the beginning of the week in Nature, took front stage in the news and in specialized forums and discussions because of its reported gigantism and the possession of the largest jaws ever recorded in this group.
