35" Eurypterid Mortality Plate From New York - Museum Quality

This is a museum quality, 35" wide mortality plate of Eurypterids (Eurypterus remipes) from Lang's Quarry in upstate New York. Pieces like this are almost unheard of and I've never seen a plate this spectacular for sale. The entire piece measures 35 x 21", and features seven complete or mostly complete Eurypterids, the largest being 8" in length. The rock has been backed for stability and we can install mounting hardware upon request.

Due to the size and weight of the piece it will need to be shipped in a crate via truck freight. Freight shipping within the continental United States is included in the purchase price. International freight shipping will be extra and will be billed after purchase. Please contact us if you need an International shipping quote.

Eurypterids, commonly known as sea Ssorpions, are an extinct group of arthropods related to arachnids that 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.
