Beautiful Eurypterus (Sea Scorpion) Multiple - New York

 
 
 
This is a beautiful, Eurypterid multiple from the Fiddler Green Formation of New York. There are four individuals spread out across the rock, making for a wonderful display piece!

The largest individual on the plate would be about 2.9" long. The smallest, complete specimen is 1.9" long. Comes with an acrylic display stand.

There is a flake of rock that looks to have chipped off during the extraction process, and was glued back to the specimen during preparation. This flake of rock contained the left paddle and a small portion of the head of one of the Eurypterids.

Eurypterids, commonly known as Sea Scorpions are an extinct group of arthropods that are related to arachnids and include the largest known arthropods to have ever lived. Prevalent during the Silurian and Devonian, eurypterids were segmented aquatic arthropods, with compound eyes, and two club-like "arms." Some species exhibit toothed claws, and may therefore have been predators.
