Rem.: bathypelagic (800-1010 m).
Roe (1975, p.369) is unable to identify these females with any of the four families having sensory setae on the Mx2 endopod. Thes setae are all simple and worm-like, thereby excluding them from either the Phaennidae or Scolecitrichidae according to Bradford (1973). The presence of a P5 distinguishes them from Diaixidae. They may be members of the Tharybidae but as their swimming legs are incomplete it is impossible to be certain.
