Chirostyloidea

provided by wikipedia EN

Chirostyloidea is an anomuran taxon with squat lobster-like representatives. It comprises the three families Chirostylidae, Eumunididae and Kiwaidae.[1] Although representatives of Chirostyloidea are superficially similar to galatheoid squat lobsters, they are more closely related to Lomisoidea and Aegloidea together forming the taxon Australopoda.[2] No fossils can be confidently assigned to the Chirostyloidea, although Pristinaspina may belong either in the family Kiwaidae or Chirostylidae.[3]
