... into the kinematic consequences of scaling limits in tiny elastic mechanisms. Mantis shrimp (Stomatopoda: Crustacea) offer a particularly amenable system for addressing the scaling of LaMSA within species. Adults use a LaMSA mechanism in their raptorial appendages (second thoracopods) to capture or process prey...

... or controlled prior to movement. We tested whether mantis shrimp (Stomatopoda: Neogonodactylus bredini ) vary their ultrafast smashing strikes and, if so, how this control is achieved prior to movement. We collected high-speed images of strike mechanics and electromyograms of the extensor and flexor muscles...

...M. S. deVries; E. A. K. Murphy; S. N. Patek SUMMARY Ambush predation is characterized by an animal scanning the environment from a concealed position and then rapidly executing a surprise attack. Mantis shrimp (Stomatopoda) consist of both ambush predators (‘spearers’) and foragers (‘smashers...

... phylogenetic analyses of relationships among species based on nucleotide sequence data from two nuclear (18S and 28S rDNA) and two mitochondrial [16S and cytochrome oxidase I (COI)] genes. Based on our recovered phylogenetic relationships among species, we propose two new superfamilies within the Stomatopoda...
