Ophiomorpha ichno fossils from late miocene sandstone near little wanganui settlement buller south island new zealand note



Ophiomorpha ichno fossils from late miocene sandstone near little wanganui settlement buller south island new zealand note



New Zealand Journal of Geology and Geophysics 21(3): 419-422



Burrows of the ichnogenus Ophimorpha, constructed by ghost shrimps, are relatively common in very fine grained, mid-neritic-deposited, Late Miocene quartzose sandstone near Little Wanganui settlement, Buller. They are commonly the only evidence of activity by animals during deposition of the sandstone. These fossils, and present-day, mid-netritic ghost shrimps of New Zealand, confirm recent reports that not all Ophiomorpha are littoral or near-shore indicators.
