Eurypterids are found on every continent except   Antarctica--but even on this cold land, there may be eurypterids in the subsurface Paleozoic rocks. On this page are examples from Estonia and the Ukraine. i hope to add, in the months ahead, ex- amples from many other regions.
Above and at right, another specimen of Baltoeurypterus tetragonophthalmus?, CIURCA COLLECTION 052502-1. Note that eurypterid remains are preserved in windrows, typical of the New York and Ontario, Canada occurrences. The matrix is fine-grained dolostone, waterlime, similar to the typical (and famous) Bertie Waterlimes of New York.
