Many larval Hexapods might be defined in similar general terms, unlike as they are to their parents in most points of detail.
Primitively (?) wingless Hexapods with cumacean mandibles, distinct maxillulae, and locomotor abdominal appendages.
In the Carboniferous strata (Coal measures) remains of Hexapods become numerous and quite indisputable.
With the dawn of the Mesozoic epoch we reach Hexapods that can be unhesitatingly referred to existing orders.
From the Trias of Colorado, Scudder has described cockroaches intermediate between their Carboniferous precursors and their present-day descendants, while the existence of endopterygotous Hexapods is shown by the remains of Coleoptera of several families.
The post-embryonic growth of Hexapods with or without metamorphosis is accompanied in most cases by the acquisition of wings.
In the specialized ommatidia of the compound eyes of Crustacea and Hexapods the rhabdom is an important structure.'
It has been considered by them as proving that Limulus, in spite of all its special agreements with Scorpio (which, however, have scarcely been appreciated by the writers in question), really belongs to the Crustacean line of descent, whilst Scorpio, by possessing Malpighian tubes, is declared to be unmistakably tied together with the other Arachnida to the tracheate Arthropods, the Hexapods, Diplopods, and Chilopods, which all possess Malpighian tubes.
