Abstract:  The morphology of the Late Silurian (Přidoli) scorpion Proscorpius osborni (Whitfield, 1885a) (Arachnida: Scorpiones), from the Phelps Member of the Fiddlers Green Formation of New York, the ‘Bertie Waterlime’ of earlier stratigraphic schemes, is revised based on studies of new and existing material (a total of 32 specimens). Previous reports of four cheliceral articles, gnathobasic coxae, a labium and gill slits in P. osborni can be dismissed. However, we confirm the presence of… Expand
