Xanthoidea 3D Model
CMNH 15178 Xanthoidea
Oligocene or Miocene
Lincoln Creek Formation
Locality: Porter, Grays Harbor Co., Washington
Donated by Owen J. Ruic
This fossil is a member of the Crustacea superfamily. Some extant (living) crustaceans you may know today include crabs, lobsters, crayfish, and barnacles. All crustaceans are arthropods, a phylum of organisms characterized by a segmented body, symmetry in jointed legs, and an exoskeleton. In this way, crustaceans are distant relatives of modern insects and spiders!
