- ‘For the past few years, the near-consensus has been that basal craniates had gills that were supported by a branchial basket, if they were supported at all.’
- ‘Due to the reduction of the hyoid and branchial arches, no other means than the suction flow seems to be available for this function.’
- ‘The larva probably possessed the scraping mouth parts and the branchial filter seen in most extant anuran larvae, and likewise probably also pumped water rhythmically.’
