Ohtsuka & Reid, 1998 (p.783, figs.F,M)
Species Tortanus (Acutanus) ecornatus - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : S. Ohtsuka & J.W. Reid in J. Crustacean Biol., 1998, 18 (4). [p.784, Fig.5].
Female (from Black River Morass, Jalaica): A, habitus (dorsal); B, A1; C, A1 (1st segment); D, Md (mandibular palp); E, P1 (posterior); F, P2 (anterior); G, P3 (anterior); H, P4 (posterior); I, P5 (right basis and exopod omitted, anterior).
Scale bars in mm.
Nota: Cephalosome without marginal prominences such as those found in T. angularis. P5 similar to that of T. angularis, but different from latter in having terminal segment relatively shorter than in latter, outer spine located at midlength, terminal inner process swollen basally.
