Abstract

In 1990 a large eurypterid was found in an isolated slab in the Lower Devonian Snowblind Bay Formation of Cornwallis Island, Northwest Territories. The size of the slab precluded its collection at that time, and it was later collected in 1994. This new specimen represents the first documented eurypterid occurrence from the Devonian of this region. It is also the first record of a Canadian Arctic stylonurid. -from Authors
