FIGURE 10. Drawings of feet of marine heterotardigrades. A Coronarctus (heteronych claws), redrawn from Renaud-Mornant (1983). B Coronarctus (isonych claws), redrawn from Hansen (2007). C Trogloarctus, original drawing. D Megastygarctides, redrawn from Hansen & Kristensen (2006). E Pseudostygarctus, Mesostygarctus, Faroestygarctus redrawn from Renaud- Mornant (1983). We have indicated the four-claw condition, but there is variation in this group. Faroestygarctus and Pseudostygarctus galloae have only two claws, Pseudostygarctus triungulatus has three, while all the other species in these genera have four claws. Faroestygarctus has dorsal spurs on claws. F Stygarctus, Parastygarctus, redrawn from Renaud- Mornant (1982a). G Neoarctus, redrawn from de Zio Grimaldi et al. (1992). H Echiniscoides, Isoechiniscoides redrawn from Renaud-Mornant (1982a). I Anisonyches, redrawn from Renaud-Mornant (1982a)
