The machaeridian genus Plumulites is reported for the first time from the Severnaya Zemlya Archipelago of Arctic Russia, where it occurs in limestone concretions within the Sredninskaya Formation. Graptolites from the same concretions indicate the late crispus- griestoniensis Biozones of the mid Telychian (Uandovery). Similarities to plumulitid sclerites from the Upper Ordovician of the Tairnyr Peninsula promotes further interest in machaeridian faunas from this region.
