EURYPTERID SHOWING WALKING AND SWIMMING APPENDAGES - SILURIAN, UKRAINE.


Balteurypterus remiceps tetragonopthalmus Fischer

A virtually complete 3D Eurypterid missing only the last segment and the pointed telson spine. What is very interesting about this specimen is that the appendages under the head are preserved. These include three pairs of walking appendages (one even has the claws preserved). Behind them are limbs modified with paddles for swimming. Both eyes are present (left damaged).  really unusual to have these features preserved in so much detail. With the war in the Ukraine the status and availability of these beautiful Eurypterids is very problematical at the moment.

Silurian, Wenlock Series.
River Smotrych, Bolshoe Village, Zalesc Village, Kamieniec Podolski, Khmelmytskyi Region, Ukraine.

Eurypterid : 7.2 cm long.
