Are you familiar with the Vetustovermis find publicized (albeit not widely) a few months ago? An interesting case, because it is a likely candidate for a trans-phyla transitional (from the midst of the "Cambrian explosion"). There was a short discussion on PT regarding it and its significance this summer.

The side-rippling features on that thing remind me of Anomalocaris, itself a rather odd creature thought perhaps transitional from lobopod worms to arthropods.
