First of two segments (coxa, basis) of proximal part (protopod) of appendage. (Syn. coxopodite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Stomatopoda):
Second segment of thoracic appendage (thoracopod). Also interpreted as being first segment (forming fused precoxa and coxa). (Syn. coxopodite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Leptostraca):
Most proximal segment of appendage. Gonopores located on coxae of sixth (female) or eighth (male) thoracopods [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Subclass Branchiura):
In thoracopod, second of three segments (precoxa, coax, basis) of protopod; may also be applied to segment of antennule. (Syn. coxopodite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Subclass Copepoda):
First, most proximal segment of appendage. Typically forms protopod together with following segment (basis). Generally specified only in maxillules (where it bears endites and exites) and pereopods (coxae of opposed limbs united). (Syn. coxopodite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Subclass Copepoda):
The middle segment of the 3-segmented protopod of postmandibular limbs, the proximal segment of the 2-segmented protopod of the antenna and mandible [Boxshall and Halsey, 2004].
(Subclass Copepoda):
The middle segment of the protopod, proximal to the basis and distal to the praecoxa, with a single setose endite; the mandibular gnathobase of copepods includes the coxal endite with its single seta (see basis and praecoxa) [Ferrari and Dahms, in press].
(Subclass Mystacocarida):
Protopod [Stachowitsch, 1992].

Proximal part of divided protopod (separated from basis by suture). See: protopod [Cohen, Peterson, and Maddocks, in press].
(Superorder Syncarida):
First of two segments (coxa, basis) of proximal part (protopod) of appendage. May bear lateral lobes (endites, epipods). (Syn. coxopodite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Thermosbaenacea):
First of two segments (coxa, basis) of proximal part (protopod) of appendage. (Syn. coxopodite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Euphausiacea):
First, most proximal segment of appendage; forms protopod together with following segment (basis). Typically specified only when referring to thoracopods. Coxae of maxillae bear endites, those of thoracopods bear gills (epipodites), with coxae of second and seventh thoracopods (occasionally more) containing photophores.
