Resolving the early evolution of euarthropods is one of the most challenging problems in metazoan evolution 1 , 2 . Exceptionally preserved fossils from the Cambrian period have contributed important palaeontological data to deciphering this evolutionary process 3 , 4 . Phylogenetic studies have resolved Radiodonta (also known as anomalocaridids) as the closest group to all euarthropods that have frontalmost appendages on the second head segment (Deuteropoda) 5 – 9 . However, the… Expand
