Arthropoda – Arthropodes

As in similar groups the classification of the arthropodes has changed and is arranged differently according to the source used. This is especially the case with the Crustaceans, where classifications differ a lot. Here we show a simple one of the currently used taxonomies. The list of orders and families doesn´t try to be complete but is following the homeopathic usage.
