The foot of Melampus coffeus (family Ellobiidae) is divided by a transverse groove into an anterior propodium and a posterior metapodium. The anatomy of its foot is similar to that of its cousin Pedipes. Also, in front of the propodium is the snout with the mouth going thru it.
What is the mechanism of locomotion of Melampus? Lack of time is preventing me from writing more on this interesting topic. But expect more in the future.
This is the 3rd entry in a series of posts about this species. The 1st one was here and the 2nd one was here.
