The anostracans are primitive crustaceans found in inland, relictual, waters such as snow-melt pools, wet weather ponds, saline or alkaline lakes. They have no carapace and are thought to be similar in many features to the ancestral crustaceans. The body is elongate and shrimp-like and with little regional specialization of segments or appendages.
