Was the ancestral panarthropod mouth ventral or terminal?
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
It has recently been suggested that the panarthropod mouth was ancestrally terminal, based on the assumption that the ancestral tardigrade had a terminal mouth and on the observations of a terminal mouth in adults of some stem-group fossils. This is shown to be unlikely, and it is concluded that the ancestral panarthropod had a ventral mouth.
