ABSTRACT Males of Leucothoides pottsi transform into males of Anamixis hanseni in one ecdysis, during which some of the mouthparts degenerate and in which gnathopod 2 changes from a small appendage to a giant form. Leucothoides is therefore a junior synonym of Anamixis. The families Leucothoidae (which continues to comprise Leucothoe and similar genera) and Anamixidae are, however, maintained separately by redefining Anamixidac on the basis of reductions in coxa 1 and the mandibular palp, and de-emphasizing the formerly important overall reductions in mandibles and maxillae of adult male Anamixis.
