Schinderhannes bartelsi was an anomalocarid from the early Devonian. It was 10 cm long. It propelled itself through the water with the two paddles on the head, and steered itself with the smaller paddles near the spine at the posterior end.
Schinderhannes bartelsi had eleven armored segments which had gills on the bottom. Schinderhannes bartelsi is known from one specimen from Germany.
