TABLE 2. Distribution of Botsfordia caelata (Hall, 1847) and Eoobolus priscus (Poulsen, 1932) in GGU (Grønlands Geologiske Undersøgelse - now part of the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland) samples collected from the upper Bastion Formation at Albert Heim Bjerge and C.H. Ostenfeld Nunatak of North-East Greenland. Absolute number of specimens for each investigated GGU sample with relative proportions of the two species for each area indicated. See Skovsted and Holmer (2005) and Skovsted (2004, 2006) for more details.
