This new paper helps flesh out more of the arthropod gene sets:
Tagmount A, Wang M, Lindquist E, Tanaka Y, Teranishi KS, et al. (2010) 
The Porcelain Crab Transcriptome and PCAD, the Porcelain Crab Microarray 
and Sequence Database. PLoS ONE 5(2): e9327. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0009327

Among other results here, they support the pancrustacea hypothesis and 
suggest that branchiopod crustaceans (daphnia) may be more closely related 
to insects than other malacostracan crustaceans (por. crab).
