Duigan, C. Cladocera : a short course, via WWW, Jan. 5, 2005: taxonomy (The Cladocera are a former order of the branchiopod Crustacea. The members of this order had an extremely heterogeneous range of features and diverse evolutionary affinities and it has recently undergone a number of taxonomic revisions. The Cladocera have been split into four orders Anomopoda, Ctenopoda, Onychopoda and Haplopoda. More recently the anomopod families Macrothricidae and Chydoridae have been reclassified with the creation of a new suborder, the Radopoda. However, the name "Cladocera" remains a useful descriptive term to embrace representatives of the four orders.)

Simpson, G. TheWaterFlea, the cladoceran web site, Jan. 5, 2005 (Cladocera, or water fleas, are microscopic crustaceans) Cladocera (Cladocera are one "group" within the class Branchiopoda. Recent molecular evidence indicates that the cladocera are actually a monophyletic group and have been reorganised into the single order Cladocera Latreille, 1829, and the four old orders have been used as suborders. The four suborders of the order Cladocera are Anomopoda, Ctenopoda, Onychopoda and Haplopoda)
