Ref.:
Suarez-Morales, 2002 (p.88, Descr.F, figs.F); Vives & Shmeleva, 2010 (p.163, figs.F, Rem.); Suarez-Morales, 2011 (p.3, fig.F)
Species Cymbasoma nicolettae - Plate 1 of morphological figuresIssued from : E. Suarez-Morales in Mitt. Mus. Nat.kd. Berl, Zool. Reihe, 2002, 1. [p.89, Figs.1-3].
Female (from 43°5'N, 6°0'E): 1-2, habitus (ventral and dorsal, respectively); 3, distal part of ovigerous spines (dorsal view).

Nota: Oral papilla located at about 30% of the way back of the cephalothorax (against 22% in C. thompsoni). The ovigerous spines are slightly shorter in C. nicolettae (37% of total body length) than they are in C. thompsoni (40.5%)

Female: 4, anterior opart of cephalothorax (ventral); 5, left A1 (dorsal); 6, right A1 (dorsal); 7, anterior part of cephalothorax (lateral); 8, P5 (ventral ); 9, P2; 10, P1; 11, outermost exopodal seta of P3 (same pattern as in other swimming legs).
