Editor's comment The authors were uncertain of the genus but placed the fossil tube in Owenia. However, from the photographs in plates 3 & 4 the specimen is clearly a fossil tube of a polychaete in Pectinariidae, showing the cone shape and the typical precise layering like a brick-wall of the component spicules forming the tube wall. The authors considered Pectinariidae but strangely rejected an identification as a pectinariid thus (in translation): "From the external form, a comparison with the genus Pectinaria from the family Amphictenidae would be justified (Howell 1962, S W 163). The tubes of this genus also narrow down. However, the animals carry their tubes around with them (Kaestner 1965, p. 502), which is more likely to cause underlying sedimentation. This genus is therefore not considered for a closer comparison." As yet it appears that no one has reviewed this fossil species to remove it from Owenia [original comment by G.
