paleontology by Dr. Rodney Feldmann for over five decades. His work has

crustaceans from all continents, but he has also published on non-decapod
arthropods such as horseshoe crabs, millipedes, cyclidans, and other

Abstract submission is already open and available at

The *abstract deadline* is 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time, *25 July* *2023*.

This session is sponsored by the Paleontological Society and the
