Ventral surface of body segment (somite). May be fused with other sternites to form sternal plate in cephalothorax. See: episternum, pleurite, tergite [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Amphipoda):
Ventral surface of body segment (somite). Sternites of anterior division (pleosome) of abdomen may bear sternal gills; in male, sternite of last (seventh) pereon segment bears penes [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Isopoda):
Ventral surface of body segment (somite). Sternite of fifth (female) or seventh (male) pereon segment bears gonopores. (Syn. sternal plate) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Mysida):
Ventral surface of body segment (somite). May be well developed in thoracic of female to accommodate brood pouch (marsupium). (See also tergite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].

(Subclass Branchiura):
Ventral surface of body segment (somite). More clearly delimited only on thorax and between maxillae. Postmaxillary spines located on sternite between maxillae, gonopore on sternite of last thoracic somite (fourth thoracomere) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Subclass Copepoda):

(Subclass Mystacocarida):
Ventral surface of body segment (somite). (See also tergite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Ostracoda):
Ventral surface of body segment (somite). Occasionally specified in connection with genital somite of female, with fold (intercoxal plate) of sternites which unites coxae of pereopod pairs, or with sternal furca [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Remipedia):
Ventral surface of body segment; sternites of trunk segment are sometimes plate-like, sometimes reinforced or reduced to sternal bar. (See also tergite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Superorder Syncarida):
Ventral surface of body segment (somite). In anaspidacean, sternite of eighth thoracomere bears opening of reproductive system (male) or is modified to form spermatheca (female). (See also tergite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Thermosbaenacea):
Ventral surface of body segment (somite). In male, sternite of last (eighth) thoracomere bears pair of penes; in female, sternite of sixth thoracomere bears gonopores [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Euphausiacea):
Ventral surface of body segment (somite). Sternites of first four abdominal somites (pleomeres) bear median photophores. See: pleurite, tergite [Stachowitsch, 1992].
