A single carapace and its counterpart of an erymoid lobster collected from the Middle Jurassic Smithers Formation in British Columbia, permits description of a new species, Eryma walkerae. The specimen represents only the fourth species of Eryma described from North America and documents a north polar route of dispersal for erymids into North America.
