          Abstract

          Eurypterids of the Superfamily Stylonuroidea Diener 1924sensuStørmer (1974, 373) from the Pentland Hills, Midlothian, are redescribed and the evidence which these forms may give concerning the life environment of the Gutterford Burn Eurypterid Bed (Upper Llandovery), from which most of them have been obtained, is considered. Five species are recognised.Parastylonurus ornatus(Laurie) is redescribed with special reference to the organs of locomotion and reproduction. A new form from the Gutterford Burn is described asParastylonurus hendersonisp. nov.Stylonurus macrophthalmusLaurie is designated the type species of the new genusHardieopterusandStylonurus knoxaeLamont as the type species of the new genusLamontopterus. The unique holotype ofLamontopterus knoxaeis of morphological interest in showing evidence of the gut.
