This plate shows one first class Eurypterid and two parts on the one plate. No restoration.


These Silurian and Devonian predators, which are known to science as eurypterids, ranged from a mere 10 centimeters to an immense six feet, making them the largest arthropods to have ever lived. They were distantly related to spiders, land scorpions, and horseshoe crabs, and somewhat resembled a large, oversized lobster. The body of the sea scorpion was segmented, as with all arthropods, and was divided into two basic sections. The first division, the prosoma, contained the compound eyes, mouth, and six pairs of leg-like appendages, the first of which sported large, grasping pinchers. The second division of the sea scorpion body, the opisthosoma, included the tail segments and the telson, the triangular flap of armor extending from the tail.
