> Abstract Epipodites are structures on the outer edges of crustacean appendages serving as gills or for osmoregulation. Their evolutionary origin has been debated for a long time. Three major issues are of relevance: 1) the function of epipodites, 2) their development, and 3) the fossil record. While it has long been a problem to distinguish the gill and osmoregulatory functions of epipodites histologically, this has recently become possible based on ultrastructure. A respiratory function has… CONTINUE READING
