A phylogenetic analysis of the Conchostraca and Cladocera (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Diplostraca)
A computer-assisted cladistic analysis on morphological characters of the Diplostraca (Conchostraca and Cladocera) has been undertaken for the first time. The morphological information has beenExpand

Phylogeny of Branchiopoda (Crustacea) based on a combined analysis of morphological data and six molecular loci
The phylogenetic relationships of branchiopod crustaceans have been in the focus of a number of recent morphological and molecular systematic studies. Although agreeing in some respects, majorExpand

External morphology of the male of Cyclestheria hislopi (Baird, 1859) (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Spinicaudata), with a comparison of male claspers among the Conchostraca and Cladocera and its bearing
The adult male of Cyclestheria hislopi, sole member of the spinicaudate conchostracan clam shrimp family Cyclestheriidae and a species of potential phylogenetic importance, is described for the firstExpand

Larval and post‐larval development of the branchiopod clam shrimp Cyclestheria hislopi (Baird, 1859) (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Conchostraca, Spinicaudata)
The larval and post-larval development of Cyclestheria hislopi is examined by SEM. There are at least nine stages (excluding the adult) – six larval and three post-larval stages. The first fourExpand

Molecular phylogeny of the Branchiopoda (Crustacea)--multiple approaches suggest a 'diplostracan' ancestry of the Notostraca.
The evolutionary history of Branchiopoda (Crustacea) traditionally has attracted considerable interest due to the diversity of the group. Recently molecular methods have been applied to the study ofExpand

First maxillae suction discs in Branchiura (Crustacea): development and evolution in light of the first molecular phylogeny of Branchiura, Pentastomida, and other "Maxillopoda".
The fish ectoparasites Branchiura (Crustacea) display two different ways of attachment to the fish surface as adults: the first maxillae are either hooks (Dolops) or suction discs (Argulus,Expand

External morphology of Lightiella monniotae (Crustacea, Cephalocarida) in the light of Cambrian 'Orsten' crustaceans.
The species-poor meiofaunal Cephalocarida have played an important role in discussions of the phylogeny and evolution of Crustacea since their discovery in 1955. One reason may be that the morphologyExpand

A NEW GIANT SPECIES OF PREDATORY FAIRY SHRIMP FROM IDAHO, USA (BRANCHIOPODA: ANOSTRACA)
Abstract A previously unknown species of giant fairy shrimp is described. Branchinecta raptor n. sp. is highly adapted to a predatory mode of life. In both sexes, the first four pairs of thoracopodsExpand
