Abstract [en]

Preservation of a fragment of an arthropod from starved trough sediments of the Bøggild Fjord Formation (Ordovician, Floian) of Johannes V. Jensen Land in north Peary Land, North Greenland, recalls that of the lower Cambrian Sirius Passet Lagerstätte of extreme north-west Peary Land and may suggest a second locality for exceptional preservation in North Greenland. A prominent petaloid pattern on the tergopleurae reflects impression onto the internal mould of terrace lines from the cuticle exterior. The arthropod is associated with poorly preserved sponges and a depauperate assemblage of organic-walled microfossils. It is tentatively compared to Mollisonia, originally described from the Burgess Shale Lagerstätte (middle Cambrian, Miaolingian Series) of Canada.
