Aplopocranidium however, only differs from Jeremiodes by: the prominently spinose mesonotum, densely granulose to rugulose meso- and metasternum and longitudinally keeled abdominal sternites of both sexes; spinose meso- and metapleurae of females, as well as the simple mesosternum (longitudinally keeled in Jeremiodes) and club-like, gently incurving cerci of males (conspicuously hook-like in Jeremiodes).

The underlying hypothesis of this research project is that by performing biaxial deformation tests at the micro-, meso- and macro-scale meanwhile following the microstructure insitu, ground-breaking insight can be obtained on how a second strain path, a change in strain path with or without prior unloading affects the operation of the deformation mechanism, the defect accumulation and as a consequence, the evolving microstructure.
