Abstract The anatomy of the fifth limb of Isocypridina quatuorsetae Kornicker, 1975, is described and illustrated in detail, and it is concluded that the appendage is biramous. The interpretation of the morphology of the fifth limb of I. quatuorsetae is then extrapolated to the fifth limbs of selected members of the families Rutidermatidae, Sarsiellidae, and Cylindroleberididae, which are described and illustrated, and it is concluded that they are also biramous. Members of the Philomedidae have fifth limbs similar to those of the Rutidermatidae and are also biramous.
