Note on reading: The text is the latest edition of Service’s “Medical Entomology.” The chapter listings on the schedule are from the first edition, and may differ in your schedule But I know you can work it out.
+
 
+
W students: I will give you a separate schedule for the W sessions. You most realize that your credit, based on your writing, will be 25% of your grade; but that you must pass the W to get any credit in the entire course. If you are a W students and fail the W, you’ll get an F in the course. This has never happened in the past, and before I retire it had better not happen in the future.

===1. SOME ARTHROPODA GROUPS===
+
 
+
 
+
Phylum Arthropoda (”jointed feet”)
+
 
+
Subphylum Trilobita (extinct, but often pretty)
+
 
+
Subphylum Chelinidea (2 tagmata [singular is tagma], cephlo-thorax and abdomen; uses chelicerae for feeding
+
 
+
Class Xiphosura (horseshoe crabs)
+
+
Class Eurypterida (extinct; dominant for 300M years)
+
+
Class Arachnida
+
+
*Order Araneae (spiders)
+
**Order Acarina (mites, also includes ticks)
+
*Order Scorpiones
+
Order Phalangidae (daddy-long-legs)
+
  Order Pseudoscorpiones (small but impressive, as your TA will tell you)
+
 
+
Subphylum Mandibulata (2 or 3 tagmata, if 2 then head free; various bits of anatomy used for feeding, mostly by chewing or, secondarily, by sucking)
+
 
+
Class Crustacea (often good to eat)
+
 
+
Class Symphyla (small, maybe ancestor of the rest)
+
 
+
Class Diplopoda (second segment fused with first, so it appears to have two legs on each segment—millipedes)
+
 
+
Class Chilopoda (small poison jaws; centipedes)
+
+
Some call these three Classes collectively as the “Myriapoda”; poor
+
 
+
Class Insecta (or Hexapoda) (3 tagmata [head, thorax, abdomen, all separate], 6 legs)
+
