Wingertshellicus is an extinct genus of arthropod, of average size (approximately long), that has been found in Hunsrück Slate, that is located in the Rhenish Massif in Germany, and lived about 405 million years ago, during the Lower Emsian (part of the Lower Devonian). The body consists of just two main parts (or tagmata), a head (or cephalon) and a trunk (or abdomen) that comprises a long row of similar segments (or somites). The relatively small head is dominated by large eyes, and three pairs of long legs (or appendages), making it look like a damselfly nymph, although W. backesi has long antennae, unlike damselflies.
