I’m currently working on a secret paleo-recreation project and was wondering whether Eurypterids (sea scorpions), specifically of the suborder Eurypterina, had 360 degrees of eyesight (like modern flies) due to compound eyes? If not, then could they move their eyes independently of one another? Or in other words, could sea scorpions move their eyes to look in two different directions at once?

Just got back from New York with some trilobite specimens we found at Penn Dixie. I especially love the two faces (with those compound eyes) staring out of the matrix. Kind of cute, I think. These are my first trilobites, so I know nothing about species.
