Higher crustaceans (class Malacostraca) represent the most species-rich and morphologically diverse group of non-insect arthropods. The superorders Eucarida and Peracarida, two large groups that separated over 350 million years ago, encompass most malacostracan diversity. Recently, the Hox genes of the peracarid woodlouse Porcellio scaber(Isopoda) were shown to be expressed in domains that coincide with morphological boundaries of body tagmata, which differ from those in insects (Abzhanov and… CONTINUE READING
