- n. Plural form of cephalocarid.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
With linear bodies like centipedes, simple legs and no eyes, it was thought that this small group -- now placed with cephalocarids in the newly-named Xenocarida or "strange shrimp" -- would be found at the base of the crustacean family tree.
Xenocarida ( 'strange shrimps') includes remipedes and cephalocarids.
