Endite morphologies in suspension-feeding radiodonts. Photographs of specimens immersed in dilute ethanol (a) or dry (be). a, b Endites with numerous auxiliary spines. a Early Cambrian Tamisiocaris borealis (MGUH30501; image: J. Vinther). b Early Cambrian Anomalocaris briggsi (SAM P47020a; image: J. Paterson). c, d Endite with numerous complex setae, Early Ordovician Aegirocassis benmoulae (images: P. Van Roy). c General view (YPM522227). d Detail of the setae and their spinules (YPM527125). e Endite with numerous simple setae, middle Cambrian Pahvantia hastata (KUMIP314089). Scale bars represent 1 cm (c, d) and 2 mm (a, b, e). as auxiliary spines, en endites, se setae, sp spinules
