Image from Tree of Life. Class Ostracoda seed shrimp The crustacean class Ostracoda occurs in marine, freshwater, and wet-terrestrial habitats worldwide.
Roughly 13, extant species in four orders have been described, but 4x species more are known only as fossils. As such ostracods are important index fossils.
Of the four extant orders, only the Order Podocopida has freshwater species, around in genera globally. In North America, there are freshwater ostracods 57 genera, 11 families Martens et al. The two lateral valves of calcium carbonate and chitin are articulated by a dorsal ligament and closed by a single adductor muscle. Segmentation is not clearly evident in the body plan, and the typical crustacean appendages and tagmata are highly modified.
There are only three pairs of thoracic segments, and the abdomen is reduced to a pair of caudal furcae. In general, the 1st and 2nd antennae are used for swimming, although ostracods generally remain close to the substrate.
The other head appendages bear branchial plates that beat to generate a water current for gas exchange and selective filter-feeding. Ostracods lack compound eyes. Development is indirect, with a nauplius larval stage. Go to images library. Bibliography Martens, K. A subjective checklist of the Recent, free-living, non-marine Ostracoda Crustacea.

The word "ostracize" comes from the same root due to the practice of voting with shells or potsherds. An outline microfaunal zonal scheme based on both Foraminifera and Ostracoda was compiled by M. A find in Queensland, Australia in , announced in May , at the Bicentennary Site in the Riversleigh World Heritage area, revealed both male and female specimens with very well preserved soft tissue. This set the Guinness World Record for the oldest penis.
