Tesnusocaris goldichi is an extinct species of remipedian crustacean that lived in the Pennsylvanian period, the one of the two representatives of the extinct remipedian Order Enantiopoda.[2] Its fossil is from the Lower Pennsylvanian (Paleozoic, Carboniferous) Tesnus formation, Texas.[1] The other known enantiopod remipedian is Cryptocaris hootchi of the Mazon Creek fauna.
