Org/ϳpeet/) in recognizing two extant families (see Rolfe, 1981, for extinct phyllocarids) plus the recently established family Paranebaliidae following Walker-Smith and Poore (2001). Most authors in the past have credited the family Nebaliidae to Baird (1850). However, according to L. Holthuis (pers. ), Samouelle (1819:100) mentioned ‘‘Fam. VI. Nebaliadae’’ [sic] in his ‘‘Entomologist’s Useful Compendium,’’ which of course predates Baird’s (1850) work. Thus, we have attributed the family Nebaliidae to Samouelle, 1819.

Whatley (pers. ’’ Whatley (pers. , 1993) ‘‘old fashioned but acceptable to people who actually work on the group,’’ a justiﬁcation that we feel is baseless but that, at the moment, faces nothing in the way of a serious alternative classiﬁcation. Martens (1992) and Martens et al. (1998) appear to base their decisions more on shared derived characters and more often than not employ characters of the entire animal (as opposed to those of the shell only).
A comparative study of eye design in stomatopods (Harling, 2000) also supports a nonmonophyletic Gonodactyloidea and questions the ﬁvesuperfamily scheme of Mu¨ller (1994). The nonmonophyly of the Gonodactyloidea necessitates the creation of additional families and superfamilies to Rationale Ⅵ 31 accommodate some of the former gonodactyloid taxa (Ahyong, 1997; Ahyong and Harling, 2000; Cappola and Manning, 1998). Cappola and Manning (1998) also suggested that a new superfamily and family (Eurysquilloidoidea, Eurysquilloididae) should be established to accommodate the former eurysquillid genus Eurysquilloides.
