Under construction

The Dendrobranchiata are prawns as oposed to the shrimps (Caridea). Pending a more complete coverage, this rather bland holding page will have to do MAK120526


As shown in the following dendrogram, from adapted from Christopher Taylor's blog, Variety of LIfe (see also Mikko's phylogeny for an earelier version), the Decapoda are divided into two two clades, the Pleocyemata and the Dendrobrachiata. This dendrogram does not include the several known fossil lineages
