Protostomia and Deuterostomia are usually recognized, with two competing theories regarding the division of the Protostomia: one divides them into Spiralia and Cycloneuralia, the other into Lophotrochozoa and Ecdysozoa. The main discrepancy concerns the Arthropoda, which are placed with the Articulata within the Spiralia by the first group, and with the… CONTINUE READING
