Giribet G, Carranza S, Baguna J, Riutort M, Ribera C - First molecular evidence for the existence of a Tardigrada + Arthropoda clade.- Mol Biol Evol 1996 Jan;13(1):76-84     Use of rDNA and rRNA sequencing to determine phylogenetic relationships. The results are surprising. From the abstract:

The results show that arthropods are monophyletic. Tardigrades represent the sister group of arthropods (in parsimony analyses) or they are related with crustaceans (distance analysis and PRN). Arthropoda are divided into two main evolutionary lines, the Hexapoda + Crustacea line (weakly supported), and the Myriapoda + Chelicerata line. The Hexapoda + Crustacea line includes Pentastomida, but the internal resolution is far from clear. The Insecta (Ectognatha) are monophyletic, but no evidence for the monophyly of Hexapoda is found. The Chelicerata are a monophyletic group and the Myriapoda cluster close to Arachnida.
