Except for the aplacophorans, all other mollusks have solid calcareous shells produced by glands in their mantles. These shells, which provide structural support and serve as defense mechanisms, vary greatly in size and shape. The most diverse group of animals with exoskeletons is phylum Arthropoda, which includes over one million described species, most of them in the two classes Crustacea and Insecta. The first arthropods probably arose in Precambrian seas over 600 mya, and the true crustaceans were already well established by the early Cambrian period.
