  • Cambrian lobopodians have attracted much attention in that they are considered to have close affinities with the origin of arthropods, and recent studies agree that they sample the stem-groups of both Arthropoda and Onychophora. A new lobopodian species, Diania cactiformis Liu et al., 2011, was recently reported from the Chengjiang Lagerstätte (south-west China; Cambrian Series 2). This animal was interpreted as bearing arthropod-like articulated appendages and was resolved as the sister taxon… CONTINUE READING
