finishing arthrodial membrane
(Subclass Copepoda):
An arthrodial membrane which completes a segment and whose formation defines the location of the segment along the proximodistal axis of a limb. The finishing arthrodial membrane usually is the distal arthrodial membrane of a segment that forms proximal to the source segment, and is the proximal arthrodial membrane of a segment that forms distal to the source segment [Ferrari and Dahms, in press].
