pleurite
See: epimere [Martin, 2005].
See: epimere [McLaughlin, 1980].
(Order Decapoda):
Lateral part of integument of somite (as opposed to sternite = ventral surface and tergite = dorsal surface). Most clearly visible in abdomen of shrimp-like (natantian) decapod, where they may form prominent lateral extensions (those of second pleomere occasionally being largest and overlapping preceding and following pleurites). The multiplicity of terms stems from differing early interpretations of cephalothorax region, i.e., lateral side of primary somites and lateral side of overlying carapace. (Syn. epimere, epimeron, pleura, pleural lobe, pleurepimere, pleuron, tergal fold) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Stomatopoda):
Lateral extension of body segment (somite). (Syn. pleuron, lateral process) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Remipedia):
Lateral extension of each adult trunk segment; gut diverticula extend into each pleurite. (posterolateral corner: rounded, pointed). (Syn. pleural lobe) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Euphausiacea):
Lateral part of integument of somite; forms prominent, ventrally directed extensions in each abdominal somite (pleomere). (Syn. pleuron, epimere) See: sternite, tergite [Stachowitsch, 1992].
