Leptostracans, or phyllocaridans, are small, benthic marine crustaceans and there are about 20 species. Recent leptostracans are considered to be relics of a larger Cambrian taxon. They have an enormous bivalve carapace which encloses the thorax and most of the abdomen, and the compound eyes are stalked.
