The other malacostracan groups, unified as the Eumalacostraca (sensu Grobben, 1892), have only six pleomeres, all equipped with limbs.
the sister-group of the Eumalacostraca. There is no reason to assume that pedomorphosis led to the occurrence of the seventh segment in adult leptostracans and to the loss of the highly complex eumalacostracan tail-fan (Hessler, 1983; Paul et al., 1985) in this group.
