Fitzroyella alata n.sp. from the Frasnian of the Holy Cross Mountains (Góry Świętokrzyskie) is described. A cardinal process, previously unknown for the genus, has been observed in the new species and considered as characteristic of the genus Fitzroyella. Special attention is paid to the external morphology of F. alata n.sp. A new term "marginal pseudospines", a feature characteristic of uncinuloids, is proposed.
