Kimberichnus is an ichnofossil associated with the early bilaterian Kimberella.[1][2] It is known mostly from shallow marine Ediacaran sediments, often occurring alongside its producer.[3] Kimberichnus often occurs in Russia and South Australia, where it is most abundant in the shape of multiple arcuate sets of ridges with fan-shaped arrangements.[2][4]
