Eurypterus is an extinct genus of sea scorpion of the late Silurian period, inhabiting muddy bottoms about 420 million years ago, in what is now the United States.

Like most Eurypterids, Eurypterus had a sharp needle-like telson, probably used in combat.

The genus is the state fossil of New York.
