  1. Phylum ArthropodaSubphylum Crustacea

  2. General Characteristics • Crustaceans are found in marine, freshwater, and terrestrial habitats. • Possess jaw-like appendages called mandibles and maxillae (instead of chelicerae like Subphylum Chelicerata). • Crustaceans have two pairs of antennae and two pair of maxillae. • Some appendages are biramous.

  3. General Characteristics • Exoskeleton made of chitin without a waxy cuticle. • Respiration is through gills. • Crustaceans are the only group of arthropods that typically live in water. • Crustaceans are highly segmented. More derived forms are tagmatized and show fewer, more specialized, limbs.
