Worm tracks consisting of sinuous horizontal burrows composed of densely aligned, sloped, gnarled sediment aggregates that appear along the upper bedplane as characteristic strings of beads. These large burrows can be assigned to Neoeione moniliformis and probably originated from the probing activity of a reservoir-eating animal.

N. moniliformis was originally described from the Carboniferous of the United Kingdom (Boyd and McIlroy, 2018), and its occurrence in the Ordovician of Morocco is one of the oldest records of this ichnotaxon.
