Species Acartia (Acartiura) fancetti - Plate 2 of morphological figuresissued from : A.D. McKinnon, W.J. Kimmerer & J.A.H. Benzie in J. Crustacean Biol., 1992, 12 (2). [p.255, Fig.10].
Female: a, urosome (dorsal); b, idem (dorsolateral).
Nota: Distinct brown pigment patch at base of maxillae. Last thoracic segment (Th6) with 0-7 dorsal spines (average 4), posteroventral margin of segment withoutb hairs. Mean length : width ratio of genital complex in dorsal view 1.04. Lateral faces of genital complex with rows of denticles on anterior half of segment, never extending on posterior half. Posterodorsal margin of genital complex usually (95% of cases) without denticles. Length : width ratio of caudal rami in dorsal view 2.00.

Male: c, urosome (dorsal).
Nota: Distinct brown pigment patch at base of maxillae. Last thoracic segment (Th6) with 8 dorsal spines (average 4). Length : width ratio of caudal ramus 1.56. Most specimens (81%) with row of denticles onposterodorsal margin of 2nd urosome segment; only 17% with denticles on posterodorsal margin of 3rd urosome segment.

Scale bars: 0.100 mm.
