Abstract [en]

The objections of Xiao et al. to our reinterpretation are based on incorrect assumptions. The lack of nanocrystals lining the nuclear membrane is consistent with membrane fossilization, and nucleus volume through development is correlated to cytoplasm volume and fully consistent with sizes of eukaryote nuclei. Identical envelope structure unites the developmental stages of the fossils, and 2n cleavage and Y-shaped junctions are holozoan symplesiomorphies.
