> 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… 
Calcitic sclerites at base of malacostracan pleopods (Crustacea) – part of a coxa
TLDR
Sclerite arrangement in these taxa provides an important character complex for phylogenetic studies and appears as very valuable also in shedding more light on the putative relationships between Malacostraca, Myriapoda, Insecta, and Remipedia.
Exites in Cambrian arthropods and homology of arthropod limb branches
TLDR
This work draws on microtomographic imaging of the Cambrian great-appendage arthropod Leanchoilia to reveal a previously undetected exite at the base of most appendages, composed of overlapping lamellae, and infer homologous, exite is documented in the same position in members of the trilobite-allied Artiopoda.
Exceptionally well-preserved Orsten-type phosphatocopid crustaceans from the Cambrian of Poland
TLDR
A three-dimensionally preserved specimen of a late growth stage of Cyclotron angelini from the Furongian strata of northern Poland is described, which possesses six pairs of appendages (2nd–7th pairs; antennula missing), much of setation, sternum with paragnath humps, and the trunk end with the putative anus.
Without Gills: Localization of Osmoregulatory Function in the Copepod Eurytemora affinis
TLDR
These investigations uncovered novel osmoregulatory structures at the swimming legs, which are designated the “Crusalis organs” and identified specific tissues specialized for ion transport, potentially enabling this small crustacean to rapidly transition into freshwater habitats.
The evolution of biramous appendages revealed by a carapace-bearing Cambrian arthropod
Biramous appendages are a common feature among modern marine arthropods that evolved deep in arthropod phylogeny. The branched appendage of Cambrian arthropods has long been considered as the ancient
A new crustacean from the Herefordshire (Silurian) Lagerstätte, UK, and its significance in malacostracan evolution
TLDR
This well-preserved arthropod provides novel insights into the evolution of appendage morphology, tagmosis and the possible respiratory–circulatory physiology of a basal malacostracan.
†Henningsmoenicaris scutula, †Sandtorpia vestrogothiensis gen. et sp. nov. and heterochronic events in early crustacean evolution
TLDR
Based on new information and data of other ‘Orsten’ taxa, particularly those assigned already to the early evolutionary lineage of Crustacea, a small-scale computer-based phylogenetic analysis was performed, detecting three peramorphic heterochronic events in the evolutionary lineage towards Eucrustacea.
How to align arthropod legs
TLDR
It is found that all arthropod leg segments correspond to each other in a one-to-one fashion, and this alignment suggests that insect and myriapod tracheae are convergent and homologous structures.

A Cambrian micro-lobopodian and the evolution of arthropod locomotion and reproduction
TLDR
The lateral orientation of the limbs and their anchoring spines of the new lobopodian imply that early arthropods were crawlers rather than walkers, and the morphology of O. evamuellerae aids in a clearer picture of the early evolution of arthropoda.
Homology of Holocene Ostracode Biramous Appendages with those of Other Crustaceans: The Protopod, Epipod, Exopod and Endopod
TLDR
These limbs are proposed as the best choice for comparison of ostracode limbs with those of other crustaceans and fossil arthropods with preserved limbs, such as the Cambrian superficially ostracodes-like Kunmingella and Hesslandona.
An epipodite-bearing crown-group crustacean from the Lower Cambrian
TLDR
The limb morphology and other details of this new species are markedly similar to those of living cephalocarids, branchiopods and copepods and it is assigned to the Eucrustacea, thus representing the first undoubted crown-group crustacean from the early Cambrian.
Limb ontogeny and trunk segmentation in Nebalia species (Crustacea, Malacostraca, Leptostraca)
TLDR
The presence of a row of ventral, sternitic, triangular processes between the bases of the thoracopods, as they are found in certain stages of a species of Nebalia, is suggested as a possible ground pattern for the Malacostraca.
The structure and function of the gill tufts in larval Amphipterygidae (Odonata: Zygoptera)
Larvae of the subfamily Amphipteryginae (Odonata) bear a tuft of tracheal gills on either side of the anus. The two tufts are derived from the laminae sub‐anales, and are protected by the
Trilobites and the Origin of Arthropods
TLDR
The appearance of fossilizable hard parts in arthropods resulted from shift in supporting function from the body cavity, primitively a hydrostatic skeleton, to the cuticle, which came to be strengthened in becoming an exoskeleton.
On the larval development of Eubranchipus grubii (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Anostraca), with notes on the basal phylogeny of the Branchiopoda
TLDR
It is shown that the large, proximal endite of the trunk limbs in the adult Anostraca is actually a fusion product of two smaller endites which make their appearance in the early larval development, and seems most plausible to consider L. rhyniensis a stem lineage anostracan.
The Upper Cambrian Rehbachiella and the phylogeny of Branchiopoda and Crustacea
TLDR
This study on Rehbachiella supports the monophyly of the crown-group Crustacea and reveals that only the first maxilla was morphologically and functionally included into the crustacean head, while subsequent limbs were addted to the head in a stepwise manner and became modified separately within the different crustacea lineages, which is of great relevance when evaluating the relationships between these.
