Fourth paired appendage of head; located posterior to mouth. Consists basically of proximal protopod with endites (masticatory processes) and variously developed distal branches (endopod, exopod). Serves, along with madibles, as masticatory appendage or is modified for locomotion. (Syn. first maxilla, maxilla) [Stachowitsch, 1992].

Second paired mouthpart on underside of head; located between mandibles and maxillae. If fully developed, consists of proximal protopod with endites and exites as well as distal biramous palp with inner branch (endopod) and outer branch (exopod). The term first maxilla is often preferentially applied. (biramous, uniramous; setose, spinose, subchelate; prehensile). (Syn. first maxilla) [Stachowitsch, 1992].

Fourth paired appendage of head (cephalon); located between mandibles and maxillae. Represents second pair of mouthparts and, if fully developed, consists of three-segmented base with two endites and one exile as well as distal endopod (palp). (foliaceous). (Syn. first maxilla) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
