Eumalacostraca

Reconstruction of Palaeopalaemon newberryi, from Schram (2009).


Belongs within: Pancrustacea.
Contains: Thylacocephala, Hoplocarida, Decapoda, Anaspidacea, Bathynellacea, Euphausiacea, Thermosbaenacea, Mysidacea, Phreatoicidea, Scuticoxifera, Asellota, Microcerberidae, Cosinzeneacea, Cumacea, Tanaidacea, Amphipoda.

The Eumalacostraca is a clade containing most of the familiar macroscopic crustaceans, such as amphipods, isopods and shrimps. Living eumalacostracans are commonly divided between four major groups: the Hoplocarida (which some authors exclude from the Eumalacostraca), Syncarida, Peracarida and Eucarida. However, the monophyly of Eucarida, including the Decapoda, Euphausiacea and Amphionides, and characterised by the fusion of the carapace to the thoracic segments to form a cephalothorax, is uncertain. The Peracarida includes amphipods, isopods and related taxa; most peracarids possess a ventral brood pouch formed from thin flattened plates (oostegites) arising from the base of the legs.

Synapomorphies (from Ax 2000): First antenna and rostrum firmly fused to rest of head; statocyst present in basal segment of first antenna; pleon and tail fan developed as muscular structure for use in escape; mandibles of larva with row of setae between processus incisivus and processus molaris, and one seta on left mandible converted to lacinia mobilis.
