(Order Cumacea):
Fourth of five segments (ischium, merus, carpus, propodus, dactylus) of endopod of thoracopod (maxillipeds and pereopods) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Tanaidacea):
Sixth of basically seven segments (coxa, basis, ischium, merus, carpus, propodus, dactylus) of thoracopod. In second pair of thoracopods (cheliped or first pereopod) forms chela or subchela together with dactylus [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Decapoda):
Sixth segment of appendage, between carpus and dactylus. May serve as proximal element of subchela or be divided into proximal manus and distal (fixed) finger of chela [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Amphipoda):
Sixth of basically seven segments (coxa, basis, ischium, merus, carpus, propodus, dactylus) of thoracopod; represents fifth movable (free) segment. In gnathopod, may be greatly enlarged to form subchela or chela together with dactylus. See: palm [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Isopoda):
Article 6 of pereopod [Kensley and Schotte, 1989].
(Order Isopoda):
()
Schematic representation of an isopod illustrating morphological terms. [Kensley and Schotte, 1989]
Sixth or next to last segment of thoracopod; located between carpus and dactylus [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Mysida):
Fifth of basically six segments (preischium, ischium, merus, carpus, propodus, dactylus) of inner branch (endopod) of thoracopod. May form a multisegmented unti together with carpus (carpopropodus). (simple, multiarticulate) (see also subchela) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Stomatopoda):
Sixth segment of thoracic appendage (thoracopod); located between carpus and dactyl. In first five thoracopods, forms subchela together with dactyl (especially well developed in second thoracopod as raptorial claw). Bears tuft of setae for cleaning body on fifth thoracopod. (inner margin: smooth, pectinate, denticulate, grooved) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Superorder Syncarida):
Fifth of basically six segments (preischium, ischium, merus, carpus, propodus, dactylus) of inner branch (endopod) of thoracopod. Main bend (knee) of thoracopod typically located between carpus and propodus [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Thermosbaenacea):
Fourth of basically five segments (ischium, merus, carpus, propodus, dactylus) of inner branch (endopod) of thoracopod [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Euphausiacea):
Sixth segment of thoracopod (fourth and next to last segment of five-segmented endopod); positioned between carpus and dactylus [Stachowitsch, 1992].
