Morphology and the classification of the so-called Cladocera

  title={Morphology and the classification of the so-called Cladocera},
  author={Geoffrey Fryer},
The validity as a monophyletic taxon of the group of branchiopod crustaceans long regarded as constituting the Cladocera is questioned. This seems in fact to be a heterogeneous assemblage whose members probably merit assignment to four separate orders. The Onychopoda and Haplopoda (the so-called Gymnomera) clearly stand apart from the Ctenopoda and Anomopoda (the so-called Calyptomera) and differ in important respects from each other. While sharing several characters, some doubtless indicative… CONTINUE READING
