ABSTRACT We describe the skeletomusculature of the trunk segments and their limbs, which power swimming (Kohlhage and Yager, 1994). Contrary to previous descriptions, the peduncle is composed of two podomeres, the coxa and basis. Except for the hinge lines adjacent to the coxa, all are along the anterior margin, making the muscles that pass across them flexors; extension is either passive or a result of hydrostatic turgor. Remipedian trunk musculature falls comfortably within the crustacean pattern.
