Abstract

Radiolaria of the family Palaeoscenidiidae were recovered from two bedded-limestone and two limestone-concretion samples from the upper Llandovery of the Cape Phillips Formation, Cornwallis Island, Arctic Canada. The new genus Insolitignum is defined by two apical rays, three basal rays, and a principal ray in an intermediate position. The principal ray distinguishes this genus from Palaeoephippium. Insolitignum dissimile, the type species of the new genus, was previously placed in Palaeoephippium. New species described here are Insolitignum peranima, Insolitignum vivanima, and Palaeoephippium adraini.
