pseudepipod
Lateral lobe arising from distal part of basis or proximal part of exopod [McLaughlin, 1980].
Lateral ramus arising from proximal portion of exopod or from basis just proximal to exopod. (Syn. pseudepipodite) [Moore and McCormick, 1969].
(Class Cephalocarida):
Laterally directed lobe of proximal part (protopod) of maxillae and thoracopods. Relatively large, flattened, setose, and giving appendages a triramous or, with endites, a mutli- or polyramous appearance. Represents and epipod, but is termed pseudepipod due to distal point of origin on protopod. (Syn. pseudepipodite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
