• clade
  • Radiodonta is a clade of stem-group arthropods that was successful worldwide during the Cambrian period, and included the earliest large predators known. (wikipedia.org)
  • legs
  • The hairs on the body are yellow, erect and long and abundant, but on the antennae and legs they are shorter and suberect (standing almost in an erect position). (wikipedia.org)
  • A class of arthropods with two body parts and eight legs. (aahom.org)
  • prey
  • Workers are strictly nocturnal (active mainly at night) and are solitary foragers, collecting arthropod prey and sweet substances such as honeydew from scale insects and other Hemiptera. (wikipedia.org)
  • larvae
  • Longicorn beetles are sometimes called long-horned beetles, nicknamed for their very long antennae, or timber beetles, because the larvae tunnel into wood). (amnh.org)
  • analyses
  • The group is generally regarded as monophyletic, and many analyses support the placement of arthropods with cycloneuralians (or their constituent clades) in a superphylum Ecdysozoa. (wikipedia.org)
  • Periplaneta
  • We determined the open-loop dynamics of a tactile sensor, specifically the antenna of the American cockroach, Periplaneta americana , an animal that escapes predators by using its antennae during rapid closed-loop tactilely mediated course control. (biologists.org)
  • groups
  • Her research is extremely complex, requiring knowledge of arthropods and plants and the interaction between the two groups of organisms. (amnh.org)
  • Likewise, the relationships between various arthropod groups are still actively debated. (wikipedia.org)
  • morphology
  • Giribet G, Edgecombe GD and Wheeler WC (2001) Arthropod phylogeny based on eight molecular loci and morphology. (els.net)
  • membrane
  • However, the antenna does not hang free on the membrane, but pivots on a rigidly sprung projection from the rim of the torulus. (wikipedia.org)
