Abstract A phylogenetic analysis and review of Paleozoic phyllocarid systematics is presented using morphology-based characters from Cambrian to modern taxa. The resulting cladograms of the Phyllocarida suggest that the suborder Ceratiocaridina as traditionally defined (families Ceratiocarididae and Caryocarididae) is paraphyletic. Caryocarididae is subsequently elevated to subordinal rank with the erection of Caryocaridina n. suborder, resulting in two monophyletic suborders. Haplocaris n. gen… 
Morphology, palaeobiology and phylogeny of Oryctocaris balssi gen. nov. (Arthropoda), a phyllocarid from the Lower Devonian Hunsrück Slate (Germany)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of several Palaeozoic phyllocarids reveals that N. balssi and N. stuertzi Jaeckel, 1921 are not congeneric, as was previously assumed, and that there are significant morphological differences between these taxa.
Phyllocarid crustaceans from the Late Devonian of the Kowala quarry (Holy Cross Mountains, central Poland)
TLDR
Two new species are described from Kowala strata: Echinocaris bisulcata sp.
Redescription, paleogeography, and experimental paleoecology of the Silurian phyllocarid Gonatocaris
Abstract. Gonatocaris decora (Clarke, 1901) is an unusual, highly ornamented Silurian phyllocarid from the Pittsford Shale Member of the Vernon Formation, Salina Group of New York, that has been
The evolutionary history of Stomatopoda (Crustacea: Malacostraca) inferred from molecular data
TLDR
Ancestral state reconstructions revealed that the most recent common ancestor of extant stomatopods had eyes with six midband rows of hexagonal ommatidia, and this is consistent with the malacostracan ground-plan.
Bivalved arthropods from the Middle Ordovician Winneshiek Lagerstätte, Iowa, USA
Abstract. The Middle Ordovician (Darriwilian) Winneshiek Lagerstätte of northeast Iowa is preserved in a meteorite crater. Besides conodonts, the fossils are dominated by arthropods, particularly
Archaeostracan (Phyllocarida: Archaeostraca) antennulae and antennae: Sexual dimorphism in early malacostracans and Ceratiocaris M'Coy, 1849 as a possible stem eumalacostracan
TLDR
The presence of antennulae with two subequal length rami in Rhinocaridina and Echinocarodina supports previous assertions that possessing biramous antennal scale is a malacostracan synapomorphy, and suggests that ceratiocarids could represent stem eumalacstracans.
Macroevolutionary patterns of body plan canalization in euarthropods
TLDR
Overall ordination patterns between the main morphogroups are consistent with another, independently coded, extant-only dataset providing molecular and morphological rates of evolution, which would support the view that the swiftness of the Cambrian explosion was mostly associated with the buildup of genetic regulatory networks.
Malacostracean Of The Manacapuru Formation (Silurian-Devonian) Pará State, Brazil
This work deals the systematic and paleobiologic studies on malacostraca siluro-devonian in two outcrops of the Manacapuru Formation, located at Belo Monte site, Pará state, Amazonas Basin. Were
Appendages, functional morphology and possible sexual dimorphism in a new ceratiocaridid (Malacostraca, Phyllocarida) from the Early Devonian Hunsrück Slate (south‐western Germany)
TLDR
The holotype specimen is the most completely known ceratiocaridid with an almost entire set of appendages including biflagellate antenniform antennules, robust uniramous antennae with hook‐like flagellum, thoracopods densely covered with setae and probably six pairs of pleopods.

PHYLOGENETIC AND BIOGEOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS OF DEVONIAN PHYLLOCARID CRUSTACEANS
TLDR
Biogeographic analysis of Middle and Upper Devonian members of the phyllocarid order Archaeostraca Claus reveals an extremely low rate of vicariant speciation, while episodes of range expansion are frequent, which may suggest a relationship between increased dispersal, diminished Speciation, and the Late Devonian biotic crisis.
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF CRUSTACEANS WITH FOLIACEOUS LIMBS: AN 18S rDNA STUDY OF BRANCHIOPODA, CEPHALOCARIDA, AND PHYLLOCARIDA
TLDR
Results strongly support three clades among the crustacean ingroup: a branchiopod clade, a (cephalocarid + copepod)Clade, and a malacostracan clade that includes the phyllocarids leptostracans Nebalia sp.
A new phyllocarid (Crustacea: Malacostraca) from the Silurian Fossil–Lagerstätte of Herefordshire, UK
TLDR
Cinerocaris magnifica provides critical evidence of the limb morphology of an early malacostracan, which will be important in understanding crustacean evolution.
Crustacean disparity through the Phanerozoic: comparing morphological and stratigraphic data
  • M. Wills
  • Environmental Science, Geography
  • 1998
TLDR
Crustaceans provide an excellent subject for a continuous study of disparity (approxiamtely bodyplan variety) from the Cambrian to the Recent, with a range of forms more disparate than the mean of random samples drawn from the pool of all the taxa considered.
South American Ordovician phyllocarids (Crustacea, Malacostraca)
TLDR
A detailed morphological analysis of exoskeleton remains of the South American Ordovician phyllocarid crustaceans leads to the recognition of a previously unexpected biodiversity from the Tremadocian up to the Katian, and the genus Caryocaris clearly appears to be a comprehensive genus.
