Remipedes are a small and enigmatic group of crustaceans, first described only 30 years ago. Analyses of both morphological and molecular data have recently suggested a close relationship between Remipedia and Hexapoda. If true, the remipedes occupy an important position in pancrustacean evolution and may be pivotal for understanding the evolutionary history of crustaceans and hexapods. However, it is important to test this hypothesis using new data and new types of analytical approaches. Here…

Pancrustacean Evolution Illuminated by Taxon-Rich Genomic-Scale Data Sets with an Expanded Remipede Sampling
TLDR
Mapping key crustacean tagmosis patterns and developmental characters across the revised phylogeny suggests that the ancestral pancrustacean was relatively short-bodied, with extreme body elongation and anamorphic development emerging later in pancrustACEan evolution.
Phylogenetic analysis and systematic revision of Remipedia (Nectiopoda) from Bayesian analysis of molecular data
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the crustacean class Remipedia uncovered several inconsistencies with the current taxonomic classification of Remipedia, and suggests a taxonomic revision that accords with the topologies of the phylogenetic analyses.
Phylotranscriptomics to bring the understudied into the fold: monophyletic ostracoda, fossil placement, and pancrustacean phylogeny.
TLDR
By concatenating molecular and morphological data, pancrustacean fossils are placed in the phylogeny, which can be used for studies of divergence times in Pancrustacea, Arthropoda, or Metazoa and illustrates how adding extensive next-generation sequence data from understudied groups can yield important new phylogenetic insights into long-standing questions.
Molecular phylogenetic analyses support the monophyly of Hexapoda and suggest the paraphyly of Entognatha
TLDR
This is the first study to include all hexapod orders in a phylogenetic analysis using multiple nuclear protein-coding genes to investigate the phylogeny of Hexapoda, with an emphasis on Entognatha, and shows that Protura is the sister lineage to all other hexapods and that DiplURA or Diplura + Collembola is closely related to Ectognatha.
Phylogenomic analysis of Copepoda (Arthropoda, Crustacea) reveals unexpected similarities with earlier proposed morphological phylogenies
  • Seong-il Eyun
  • Biology, Environmental Science
    BMC Evolutionary Biology
  • 2017
TLDR
The first phylogenomic study of Copepoda provides new insights into taxonomic relationships and represents a valuable resource that improves understanding of copepod evolution and their wide range of ecological adaptations.
An integrative phylogenomic approach to elucidate the evolutionary history and divergence times of Neuropterida (Insecta: Holometabola)
TLDR
An extensive phylogenomic analyses consolidate several key aspects in the backbone phylogeny of Neuropterida, such as the basal placement of Coniopterygidae within Neuroptera and the monophyly of Osmyloidea, and provide new insights into the timing of diversification of neuropterida.
Tetraconatan phylogeny with special focus on Malacostraca and Branchiopoda: highlighting the strength of taxon-specific matrices in phylogenomics
TLDR
A taxon-rich phylogenomic dataset focusing on crustacean lineages based solely on genomes and new-generation Illumina-generated transcriptomes, including 89 representatives of Tetraconata is assembled, which constitutes, to the authors' knowledge, the first phylogenomic study specifically addressing internal relationships of Malacostraca and Branchiopoda.
Phylomitogenomics of Malacostraca (Arthropoda: Crustacea)
TLDR
Phylomitogenomic analyses strong support that Euphausiacea is nested within Decapoda, and closely related to Dendrobranchiata, which is also consistent with the evidence from developmental biology.
Evaluating topological conflict in centipede phylogeny using transcriptomic data sets.
TLDR
The Amalpighiata hypothesis, which shows little gene-tree incongruence and is robust to the influence of among-taxon compositional heterogeneity, implies convergent evolution in several morphological and behavioral characters traditionally used in centipede phylogenetics, but accords with patterns of first appearances in the fossil record.

Molecular phylogeny of the Branchiopoda (Crustacea)--multiple approaches suggest a 'diplostracan' ancestry of the Notostraca.
Revealing pancrustacean relationships: Phylogenetic analysis of ribosomal protein genes places Collembola (springtails) in a monophyletic Hexapoda and reinforces the discrepancy between mitochondrial and nuclear DNA markers
TLDR
The analyses clearly suggest that Hexapoda is monophyletic, which underpins the inconsistency between nuclear and mitochondrial datasets when analyzing pancrustacean relationships.
Arthropod relationships revealed by phylogenomic analysis of nuclear protein-coding sequences
TLDR
This work presents strongly supported results from likelihood, Bayesian and parsimony analyses of over 41 kilobases of aligned DNA sequence from 62 single-copy nuclear protein-coding genes from 75 arthropod species, providing a statistically well-supported phylogenetic framework for the largest animal phylum.
Phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial protein coding genes confirms the reciprocal paraphyly of Hexapoda and Crustacea
TLDR
The finding of the reciprocal paraphyly of Hexapoda and Crustacea suggests an evolutionary scenario in which the acquisition of the hexapod condition may have occurred several times independently in lineages descending from different crustacean-like ancestors, possibly as a consequence of the process of terrestrialization.
Phylogeny of Branchiopoda (Crustacea) based on a combined analysis of morphological data and six molecular loci
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of branchiopod crustaceans have been in the focus of a number of recent morphological and molecular systematic studies, and almost all analyses result in the same topology when only ingroup taxa are considered.
A congruent solution to arthropod phylogeny: phylogenomics, microRNAs and morphology support monophyletic Mandibulata
TLDR
The phylogenomic analyses strongly support Mandibulata, and show that Myriochelata is a tree-reconstruction artefact caused by saturation and long-branch attraction, and provide strong support for the inclusion of pycnogonids in a monophyletic Chelicerata, a paraphyletic Cycloneuralia, and a common origin of Arthropoda.
Pancrustacean phylogeny: hexapods are terrestrial crustaceans and maxillopods are not monophyletic
TLDR
A Bayesian statistical estimate of divergence times suggests a Precambrian origin for Pancrustacea (600 Myr ago or more), which precedes the first unambiguous arthropod fossils by over 60 Myr.
A phylogenomic approach to resolve the arthropod tree of life.
TLDR
It is shown that phylogenomic data can substantially advance the understanding of arthropod evolution and resolve several conflicts among existing hypotheses.
