It is hoped that this publication will generate discussion among lobster specialists and bring forth additional characters for cladistic analysis and other new insights that may lead to better support in nephropisae addressing lobster taxonomy. Morphology-based phylogenetic analysis of the clawed lobsters family Nephropidae and the new family Chilenophoberidae. In fact, many Hoploparia are well covered by granules or tubercles. Lobsters, like many other decapod crustaceans, grow throughout life and are able to add new muscle cells at each moult.

This longevity may be due to telomerase , an enzyme that repairs long repetitive sections of DNA sequences at the ends of chromosomes, referred to as telomeres. Telomerase is expressed by most vertebrates during embryonic stages, but is generally absent from adult stages of life. They generally live singly in crevices or in burrows under rocks. They scavenge if necessary, and are known to resort to cannibalism in captivity. However, when lobster skin is found in lobster stomachs, this is not necessarily evidence of cannibalism — lobsters eat their shed skin after moulting.
However, when they flee, they swim backward quickly by curling and uncurling their abdomens. Symbiotic animals of the genus Symbion , the only member of the phylum Cycliophora , live exclusively on lobster gills and mouthparts.
You may improve this section , discuss the issue on the talk page , or create a new section, as appropriate.
August "Lobster claw" redirects here. For the species of flowering plants, see Lobster-claw. Lobster is used in soup, bisque , lobster rolls , and cappon magro. Lobster meat may be dipped in clarified butter , resulting in a heightened flavor. Cooks boil or steam live lobsters. Some servants specified in employment agreements that they would not eat lobster more than twice per week,  however there is limited evidence for this.
The genus has been interpreted intuitively to be morphologically primitive and ancestral to some or many modern nephropid genera. One issue is the difficulty in characterizing i. For Hoploparia, and far more than for other lobster genera, many characters show variable character states. A second issue is that the morphologies of some Recent genera e. Both issues stem from an originally ambiguous diagnosis of Hoploparia that has been variously expanded in de facto fashion to the point that, today, nobody really knows what Hoploparia means.

Cladistic analyses herein indicate that Hoploparia is paraphyletic and, therefore, support the intuitive judgement that Hoploparia is a wastebasket genus. In fact, many Hoploparia fossl well covered by granules or tubercles. Food and Drug Administration. Microbiology and Molecular Biology Reviews. Both issues stem from an originally ambiguous diagnosis of Hoploparia that has been variously expanded in de facto fashion to the point that, today, nobody really knows what Hoploparia means. Exopod on maxilliped 2: Abstract Hoploparia McCoy, Lower Cretaceous Valanginian —Miocene is, by far, the most diverse clawed lobster genus fossil or Recent ; 49 species are known.
