ABSTRACT Eurycopecornuta is typical of the many advanced asellotes that have reevolved the ability to swim, albeit now backwards. Pcreiopods V-VII are modified as paddles, and their respective body segments are conspicuously enlarged to accommodate the bulky extrinsic musculature of the limbs. However, fundamentally, the skeletomusculature of these appendages is the same as that of unmodified ambulatory pereiopods on other isopods. Even though the architecture of E. cornuta is extensively modified for swimming, the animal is reluctant to do so. The significance of this is discussed.
