Anthuroidea is an infraorder of isopod crustaceans, formerly treated as a suborder, Anthuridea.[1] The group is characterised by "an elongate cylindrical body form, without dorsal coxal plates, and with a uropodal exopod attached to the peduncle proximally and dorsally".[2] There are more than 500 described species in 57 genera,[2] arranged across six families:[1]
