You could maybe try this one for size lol

This is Pulmonoscorpius Kirktonensis it lived somewhere in Scotland, cant remember where though, this fossil is in the Edinburgh museum, unfortunately the musuems under renovation for the next 2 and a half years so their massive room full of preserved inverts is closed off for now Sad

Prehistoric arthropods Sdc12519

Oh and thats one of its babies at the bottom lol a little smaller than a Hadrurus Arizonensis maybe.
