400 million year old species is threatened

I love this. These little critters are in the fossil record for the Ordovician era 450 millions years ago They might have existed longer than that but older fossil records are spotty. They are basically unchanged from their earliest known forms and they have survived all five major extinction events.

And now they might be threatened. Good going, people.
