Abstract A summary of terminologies and nomenclature currently or previously employed to describe tanaidacean appendages and somites are presented together with a proposed new standardized terminology for the order Tanaidacea. Standardized expressions and nomenclatures are suggested for all tanaidacean somites, appendages, and their articles, as well as for the orientation of tanaidacean appendages.
