Two species of Early Devonian graptolites are described from the Richardson Mountains, northern Yukon Territory; these are ?Pristiograptus sp. and Monograptus fanicus Koren', the latter being reported for the first time from the northern Canadian Cordillera. Associated grapto lites as well as the presence of M. fanicus indicate a Pragian age. The presence of M. fanicus helps fill the zonal gap between the late Lochkovian hercyniens Zone, and probable late Pragian thomasi and yukonensis Zones, and suggests that lower and upper Pragian substage divisions are possibly recognizable in the graptoiite facies.
