Abstract [en]

Ancillary localities for the Sirius Passet biota (early Cambrian; Cambrian Series 2, Stage 3) are described from the immediate vicinity of the main locality on the southern side of Sirius Passet, north-western Peary Land, central North Greenland, where slope mudstones of the Transitional Buen Formation abut against the margin of the Portfjeld Formation carbonate platform. Whilst this geological relationship may extend over more than 500 km east-west across North Greenland, known exposures of the sediments yielding the lagerst tte are restricted to a 1 km long window at the south-western end of Sirius Passet.
