Bizarre 500-Million-Year-Old Creature Unearthed

When I first saw this headline, I immediately assumed scientists had found a very old manager of my Goofmart Pharmacy... someone that might have cared since it was that many years ago.

As it turns out, this story is just about a Helicocystis moroccoensis that has "characteristics that place it as the most primitive echinoderm" with five-fold symmetry.
