Evans et al. (2021) seem to have been well aware of the circular reasoning in their argument.
Not much is known about the anatomy, biology, and ecology of the enigmatic trilobozoans.
That the same fossils can be attributed to at least six different phyla of marine invertebrates as well as terrestrial fungi really should give reason to pause.
Trilobozoans are unique to the Ediacaran biota; they appeared suddenly 560 million-years-ago in the fossil record without any precursors.
Wow, that’s cool, they not only found the elusive Ediacaran animals but even could unravel their genomes!?
