- Endite which through medial contact with opposite member of its pair serves for comminution of food; may also serve in food transport [Moore and McCormick, 1969].Paired endites used to manipulate or move food [McLaughlin, 1980].(Class Cephalocarida):One of several setose projections of base (protopod) of maxillule. Extends under labrum and serves in manipulating food. Endites of maxillae and thoracopods also occasionally termed gnathobases [Stachowitsch, 1992].(Subclass Cirripedia):Inwardly (medially) directed lobe of proximal part (protopod) of mouthpart. Represents greater part of each mandible, maxillule, and maxilla [Stachowitsch, 1992].(Subclass Copepoda):Basal part of mandible. Basically consists of elongated projection whose toothed tip extends over mouth. Bears palp (with endopod and exopod). (Syn. blade) [Stachowitsch, 1992].(Subclass Copepoda):The projecting medial surface of the coxal segment of an appendage [Boxshall and Halsey, 2004].(Subclass Copepoda):The ventral extension of the mandibular coxa, including its setose endite [Ferrari and Dahms, in press].(Subclass Mystacocarida):Projection of base (protopod) of each mandible. Extends under labrum and serves in macerating food [Stachowitsch, 1992].(Class Ostracoda):Basal part of mandible. Corresponds to coxa and consists of elongated projection who toothed tip extends over mouth [Stachowitsch, 1992].(Superorder Syncarida):In anaspidacean, one of two spinose lobes (endites) of first segment (coxa) of maxilliped [Stachowitsch, 1992].
