On no endopodite can more than three segments be definitely distinguished, but the longest ones are the most obscurely segmented.
One ramus (the endopodite) alone developed—the original axis or corm serving as its basal joint with or without gnathobase.
In many cases, one of the branches, generally the endopodite, is more strongly developed than the other.
At the distal end of the coxopodite arise the endopodite and exopodite.
The endopodite of Cryptolithus is bent backward at the carpopodite and this segment is always thickened.
The whole six segments of the endopodite of the third thoracic segments are together 21 mm.
endopodite: The inner one of the two main divisions of the limb.
The endopodite best shown is very slender, and the segments are of uniform width and only slightly longer than wide.
The outer ends of one endopodite and three exopodites project beyond the margin on the right side.
One endopodite on the right side of the head and the first five on the right side of the thorax are the best shown.
