Fossil collections from the lower Cambrian (Cambrian Series 2) Bastion Formation at Albert Heim Bjerge in North-East Greenland acquired during 1950 and 1951 contain sonic 60 specimens of olenelid trilobites. Although morphologically variable, the material can be attributed to a single species, Fritzolenellus lapworthi (Peach and Horne, 1892), previously known from the 'Fucoid' Beds of north-west Scotland. Immature specimens allow a first, limited, description of the ontogeny of Fritzolenellus. The presence of F. lapworthi in North-East Greenland offers an important tie point for correlation of Olenellus-bearing strata (Cambrian Series 2, Stage 4) across eastern Laurentia.
