Example text

Schram et al. (1997) suggest a mystacocarid ϩ copepod lineage; a relationship with copepods has also been suggested by Boxshall and Huys (1989) and Walossek and Muller (1998). The group was most recently reviewed by Boxshall and Defaye (1996) and Olesen (2001). SUBCLASS COPEPODA What could have been a truly daunting task for us has been made considerably easier by the relatively recent publication of Copepod Evolution by Huys and Boxshall (1991), by Damkaer’s (1996) list of families of copepods (along with their type genus), and by three recent treatments of copepods by Razouls (1996, free-living copepods), Raibaut (1996, parasitic copepods), and Razouls and Raibaut (1996, phylogeny and classification).

The family Thespesiopsyllidae has been removed, as it is an objective synonym of Thaumatopsyllidae (see McKinnon, 1994). The family Mantridae, originally placed in the Poecilostomatoida, was transferred to the Cyclopoida by Huys (1990d). We initially removed from the cyclopoids the Botrylophyllidae and Buproridae, following Huys and Boxshall (1991). Illg and Dudley (1980) recognized these as subfamilies of the Ascidicolidae (along with five other subfamilies), and Huys and Boxshall (1991) followed that arrangement.

There are other differences as well, such as the placement of the monstrilloids and cyclopoids. Ho (1990) consistently placed these taxa near each other, whereas Huys and Boxshall (1991) separate them in their classification, at least implying that they are not closely related. In his subsequent critique of the Huys and Boxshall (1991) phylogeny, Ho (1994a) pointed out an alternative phylogeny where the Misophrioida was depicted as the sister group to the remaining seven orders of the Podoplea. For an in-depth review of recent attempts at producing copepod phylogenies, interested readers should consult Huys and Boxshall (1991) and the critique by Ho (1994a).
