C. D. Waterston
Pagea sturrocki gen. et sp. nov., a new stylonurid eurypterid from the Lower Old Red Sandstone of Angus, is described. The genus is characterized by the possession of ctenopterid-type prosomal appendages, but other features of the prosoma resemble those of Stylonurus s.s. The affinities of the new genus are fully discussed and its anatomy compared with that of other stylonurid genera. Finer characters of the anatomy of the prosoma and prosomal appendages of Scottish type material of Stylonurus s.s. and Ctenopterus are described for the first time.
