1 Counterpart of type (holotype). Compare diagram text figure 51, p. 224. The specimen shows the general outline of the carapace, the form and position of the lateral eyes, portions of the legs and the impression of the dorsal side of the abdomen with the characteristic sculpture. Along the median line faint impressions of the opercular appendages are seen. The circular impressions apparently are muscle spots and probably paired. An outline sketch of this counterpart was given by Hall in 1884 [2d Geol. Surv. Pennsylvania, PPP, p. 25]. Natural size
