B: Ventrally preserved specimen (YPM 535704) showing four eggs in the specimen’s right genal angle.
C: Close-up of the egg-bearing region from the specimen in B.
D: Close up of the egg-bearing region from the specimen in A.
E: Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image of the eggs from the specimen in A and D. Note that the perspective is twisted ~180° from that in D.
F: SEM image of an egg from E.
G: Close-up SEM image of the egg surface from F. Note the dominant framboids and rare euhedral crystals of pyrite.
H: Close-up of a limb from A. Note the dominant framboids and rare euhedral crystals of pyrite.
I: SEM image of a disarticulated cranidium (YPM 238366) that was replaced with pyrite.
J: SEM image showing the replacement fabric from I. Note the dominant euhedral crystals of pyrite.
