Burgess Shale- amazing for containing soft parts of many Cambrian organisms
Beecher's Trilobite Bed- has many trilobites who are very well preserved and have furthered the knowledge of the anatomy of the trilobites
Mazon Creek- has hard and soft parts of many organisms, and also has many organisms that usually don't preserve as fossils

1.What genus is this?
2. What time period were they found?
3. Where are these fossils found?

FYI if you quote this you can check yourself on the genus, it's in the URL...
