node minimum age |
Rhabdotubus johanssoni was recovered from shales within the Eccaparadoxides pinus Zone (=Ptychagnostus praecurrens Zone) (Bengtson and Urbanek, 1986) which occurs within Cambrian Series 3, Age 5 (i.e. pre-Drumian) of GTS2012 (Peng et al., 2012).
node maximum age |
A soft maximum constraint is based on the maximum age interpretation of the Lantian Biota (Yuan et al., 2011). This, together with the Doushantuo Biota (Yuan et al., 2002), provides a series of Lagerstätten preserving the biota in Orsten- and Burgess Shale-like modes of fossilization. None of these Lagerstätten, least of all the Lantian, preserves anything that could possibly be interpreted as even a total group eumetazoan and on this basis we define out soft maximum constraint at 635.5 Ma ± 0.6 Myr (Condon et al., 2005) and, thus, 636.1 Ma.

Rhabdotubus johanssoni exhibits clear evidence of cortical banding which demonstrates membership of total group, if not crown-Pterobranchia and, therefore, membership of crown-Hemichordata.
