Cruziana tenella is commonly described under Isopodichnus, which is a locomotion and feeding trace of phyllopod crustaceans in nonmarine environments (Pollard, 1985).
Cruziana is interpreted as the feeding trace of trilobites and/or other arthropods such as aglaspids, limulids or phyllopods, whereas C.
At the beginning of instar IV, the limb is a phyllopod with 150 cells on the anterior surface (Fig.
As the phyllopod developed, growth of the limb resulted in a marked increase in length and width (Fig, 1E).
Each of the regions of the phyllopod grew in a different spatial and temporal pattern.
