A POSSIBLE ANOMALOCARIDID FROM THE CAMBRIAN SIRIUS PASSET LAGERSTATTE, NORTH GREENLAND

Based on a single specimen, we herein describe for the first time an appendage with possible anomalocaridid affinities as suggested by an overall gross morphology similar to that of the frontal appendage of Anomalocaris from other localitites.
