Oraciones de ejemplo
  • Neither Amphipoda nor Isopoda is known from the early Paleozoic when the Crustacea are generally represented in the fossil record by the valve-bearing Ostracoda.
  • Since the Isopoda are not otherwise known as fossils until the Pennsylvanian, an isopod affinity for Esmeraldacaris would be unexpected.
  • A good example is members of the Isopoda, which produce fully formed young.


Modern Latin (plural), from Greek isos 'equal' + pous, pod- 'foot'.
