    Your question is incomplete. Most closely related to what?

    Are you asking at what taxonomic level are the Arthropoda (arthropods)? Then that should have been your question. The arthropods are a phylum. It is a very large phylum containing more species of animal than all other animal phyla combined.

    Arthropods are a phylum of animal that has nearly all the invertebrate life with an exoskeleton,jointed legs.

    4 extant subphylums as such:

    Subphylum Chelicerata - Chelicerates

    Subphylum Crustacea - Crustaceans

    Subphylum Hexapoda - Hexapods

    Subphylum Myriapoda - Myriapods

    Each of those further divide into the class of animal
