An excretory organ in the Mystacocarida (Crustacea)

Hessler, Robert R and Elofsson, Rolf LU (2007) In Arthropod Structure & Development 36. p.171-181
Abstract
An excretory antennal gland, composed of only eight cells, is found entirely in the limb in the mystacocarid Derocheilocaris typica. The end

sac is composed of podocytes, valve cells and cap cells. The podocytes contain enormous residual vesicles. There are few pedicel complexes,

and they arise directly from the cell surface without intermediate foot processes. The excretory duct is entirely lined with microvilli, which are

separated from the lumen by a modified layer of thin cuticle.
