This group of crustaceans are considered living fossils.[1] They are commonly and collectively known as the Tasmanian anaspid crustaceans. Anaspidids have stalked eyes, long antennae and antennules, and a slender body with no carapace. The two species of Allanaspides[2][3] and the single species of Paranaspides[4] are all listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.
