NY Devonian Mystery Eurypterid, Trilobite?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I was patrolling my odd Devonian location that has rocks I'm guessing from Upstate New York that are littered with Devonian fossils and came across this on one of the large rocks (unfortunately I can't extract). I'm unsure if its maybe a seas scorpion, trilobite, or something else. My guess leaning towards sea scorpion of sorts but I'd like to hear what you guys think, its the only of it I've seen in the area wish there was more or the rock it was on wasn't a unliftable boulder haha.

@Foozil Yeah it could be, it's to partial for my limited knowledge on Devonian fossils. Oh boy there is, I can say its definitely not from fossil hunting haha, luckily I still have a hand to hunt with.

It is not eurypturid or trilobite. It may be cephalopod, but its hard to tell for sure.

@Darktooth Thanks I forget they were around as well, looks very similar to pics I have found of them.

@Fossildude19 Thanks! I'm going to change my vote to that as well haha I'm glad I realized what it could be and discovered something new to look out for.
