1. A communication apparatus comprising:
configuration circuitry, which, in operation, configures an Enhanced Physical Downlink Control Channel (EPDCCH) search space defined by a plurality of EPDCCH candidates in a set of consecutive subframes, each of the plurality of EPDCCH candidates comprising one or more Enhanced Control Channel Elements (ECCEs); and
a transmitter, which, in operation, transmits control information mapped to one of the plurality of EPDCCH candidates in the set of consecutive subframes, wherein an uplink subframe for Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) transmission by a communication partner apparatus is determined according to a last subframe of the set of consecutive subframes.
