An inwardly directed lobe on a limb segment of an arthropod, especially on the protopodite of a crustacean limb.
- We do not know if an endopod segment carries a single endite or more.
- Some endites of the endopod expose one spine, some have two and a few others three or even more.
- In some crustacean groups appendages have large, flattened exopods, endopods, epipodites, and endites.
