The widespread pelagic agnostoid arthropods enable the subdivision of Series 3 and the Furongian Series into about a dozen main interregional zones—in ascending order, these are the Ptychagnostus gibbus, Ptych. atavus, Ptych. punctuosus, Goniagnostus nathorsti, Lejopyge armata, Lejopyge laevigata, Proagnostus bulbus, Linguagnostus reconditus, Glyptagnostus stolidotus, Glypt. reticulatus, Agnostotes orientalis, and Lotagnostus americanus zones; of which the G. nathorsti zone is less cosmopolitan.

2). At 735– 740 Ma, approximately 15 myr before the Sturtian glaciation at the base of the Cryogenian, the Islay excursion is a sharp, high-amplitude (ca. , 2014). , 2012). , 1998). However, between the glacial episodes there were also pronounced negative excursions, such as the reported Taishir excursion during the midCryogenian, and the major Shuram excursion after the Gaskiers glaciation (Fig. 2). , 2012). Magnetostratigraphy has been underutilized in the Cryogenian–Ediacaran, although the few studies indicate potential for highresolution correlation.

2015)). , 2015). Whether the Sturtian episode was a single long-lasting Snowball Earth condition or consisted of fluctuating glacial conditions is uncertain; but there do not appear to have been any significant interglacial intervals. The Sturtian suddenly ended at ca. , 2004). The interglacial interval spanned approximately 20–25 myr; and the initial marine flooding on most of the shelves deposited a distinctive cap carbonate. , 2013). The Marinoan glacial episode spanned only 2 myr without any significant interglacial fluctuations, until it ended suddenly at 635 Ma.
