Scientists have shed light on a peculiar tentacled marine creature that lived 520 million years ago.

Experts thought that Cotyledion tylodes may have belonged to the jellyfish-like cnidarian group.

But new anatomical evidence from the animal's fossilised remains suggests the species was an early member of the group of small marine organisms called entoprocts.
