  • Two new specimens of the xiphosuran Kasibelinurus yueya Lamsdell, Xue & Selden, 2013 are described, from the same horizon and locality as the type. [...] Key Result Houia shows a unique combination of xiphosurid and chasmataspidid/eurypterid characteristics such as lack of opisthosomal pleura and possession of a large, ventral metastomal plate.Expand Abstract
