How to use "Monopteral" in context?

Monopteralism is an extinct, primitive form of life characterized by an extended body plan including many pairs of jointed appendages, most resembling those of insects. Moreover, monopteral life exhibits a number of other primitive traits., including the lack of a head and thorax, although some may have possessed antennae. These features are often used to classify monopteral life as a subgroup of the eukaryotes (living things with cells containing a nucleus), although this classification remains controversial.
