Oraciones de ejemplo
  • Many recent textbooks unite Ectoprocta, Phoronida and Brachiopoda under the name Lophophorata, a name introduced by Hyman, apparently because she did not like the much older name Tentaculata.
  • As these animals are quite distinct from other members of the phylum Brachiopoda they were given their own superfamily Cranioidea.
  • Several recent evolution trees show the Phoronida and Brachiopoda as closely interrelated, with the Brachiopoda possibly a paraphyletic group.

Origen

Modern Latin (plural), from Greek brakhiōn 'arm' + pous, pod- 'foot'.
