(5) Labidocera Lubbock, 1853
Rem.: Type: Labidocera darwinii Lubbock, 1853. Total: 55 spp. + 4 unidentified.
Fleminger (1967, p.37-38) in reviewing the genus, division of the species among groups and superspecies has proven most helpful and provisional monophyletic aggregations give:
1- Superspecies: wilsoni (coastal, temperate to subtropical): jollae group: L. jollae Esterly, diandra Fleminger, kolpos Fleminger (west coast, North America).
mirabilis group: L. mirabilis Fleminger, wilsoni Fleminger & Tan (southern Florida, bahamas Islands).
2-Superspecies detruncata (mostly tropical, neritic or island forms of Indo-Pacific):
L. detruncata (Dana) (Indo-Pacific, oceanic), orsinii Giesbrecht, gangetica Sewell, cervi Krämer, caudata Nicholls, bataviae Scott, madurae Scott, pavo Giesbrecht, species Farran (1936) (Indo-Pacific, neritic-island forms), nerii Kröyer (Atlantic, oceanic).
3 -Superspecies darwinii (mainly neritic):
trispinosa group: L. trispinosa Esterly, johnsoni Fleminger, lubbockii Giesbrecht (western American coast).
Ungrouped species: L. darwinii Lubbock (southeastern South America), fluviatilis Dahl (eastern South and Central America), aestiva Wheeler (eastern North America), species (in preparation, suntropical-tropical America), scotti Giesbrecht (west Africa), brunescens Czerniavski (Mediterranean, west Africa), acutifrons (Dana) (subtropical panoceanic).

Species based on immature stages, or otherwise doubtful:
L. simplex (Dana), crispata (Dana), exigua (Dana), frivola (Dana), media (Dana), hebes (Dana), inermis Brady, chubbi Brady, agilis (Dana).

Mulyadi (2002, p.17) considers 4 groups and 1 unassigned group: 1 - L. detruncata-group Fleminger, 1967 (predominantly neritic, Indo-West Pacific): L. bataviae A. Scott; L. detruncata (Dana); L. pavo Giesbrecht; L. sinilobata Shen & Lee.
2 - L. kroyeri-group Fleminger, 1967 (predominantly neritic, Indo-West Pacific): L. kroyeri (Brady); L. muranoi Mulyadi.
3 - L. minuta-group Mulyadi, 1997 (predominantly neritic; Indo-West Pacific): L. bengalendsis Krishnaswamy; L. minuta Giesbrecht.
4 - L. pectinata-group Fleminger & al., 1982 (predominantly neritic, Indo-West Pacific): L. javaensis Mulyadi.
5 - Unassigned-group Fleminger, 1986 (predominantly neritic): L. acuta (Dana); L. laevidentata (Brady).
Mulyadi (2014, p.1629) gives a definition for the L. detruncata-Group:
In the female: 1- cephalosome without lateral cephalic hooks; 2- rostrum bifurcate, rami taper uniformly and separated at their base by more than their own length; 3- dorsal eye lenses small and separated by more than twice eye diameter; 4- urosome of 2 somites, genital double-somite short and bulbous; 5- caudal ramus with fan-shaped rami, caudal setae swollen at base; 6- P5 asymmetrical, exopod with 3 outer setae and 2 terminal setae, endopod pointed at apex. Male: 1- genital somite without any processes; 2- right A1 geniculate with denticulate ridges on anterior surface of segments 17, 18 and fused segments 19-21; 3- thumb and finger of right P5 long and slender, concave surface between thumb and finger without any processes; 4- exopodal segment 2 of left leg short and bulb-shaped furnished with 3-4 roud apex of spines.

Fleminger (1986) and Mulyadi (1997) grouped 14 species of Labidocera from Indonesian waters into 4 species-groups: detruncata-, kroyeri-, minuta-, pectinata- plus after Mulyadi (2014, p.1629) the kaimanaensis- as a sub-group of detruncata.

Diagnosis from Bradford-Grieve (1999, p.186) :
- As in the family definition.
- Head and pedigerous segment 1 separate, pedigerous segments 4 and 5 fused;
- Head with or without hooks and with 1 pair of dorsal cuticular lenses and a protuberant ventral eye which extends anteroventrally between the rostral prongs.
- Rostrum deeply bifurcate with 2 relatively fine filaments, and lacking a lens.
- Last thoracic segment with corners produced into pointed lobes.
- Female urosome 2- or 3-segmented; male urosome 4- or 5-segmented;
- Genital segment and caudal rami sometimes asymmetrical in female; symmetrical in male.
- Female A1 23-segmented; male right A1 with at least 4 separate segments distal to the hinge between segments 18 and the fused segments 19-21, the middle section is expanded.
- Md with 3-4 small teeth.
- Mx1 exopod relatively well-developed.
- Mxp with 6 distinct segments.
- Exopod of P1 to P4 3-segmented; endopod of P1 to P4 2-segmented.
- Female P5 biramous, each ramus 1-segmented.
- Male right P5 uniramous with a chela; left leg sometimes with a rudimentary endopod.

For Hirabayashi & Ohtsuka (2014, p.29), although Mulyadi (2002) defined the Indo-West Pacific L. detruncata species group (10 species), it can be further subdivided into the following 5 newly rtoposed species groups on the basis of variation in the differing expressions of sexual dimorphism. L. sinilobata, L. jaafari, L. gangetica share synapomorphies: 1- the absence of endopods from P5 of the female; 2- the thumb and finger of the right P5 male, slender; 3- there is a rounded process present basal to the thumb of the right male P5; 4- there is a protrusion on the inner surface of the terminal segment of the left male P5/. These 3 species are referred to L. gangetica species group.
Two species, L. cervi, L. caudata are unusual in both having a triangular process distally on the terminal segment of the male left P5. The 1st exopodal segment of male P5 bears an outer subterminal process in both species, although it is not certain wether these are homologous. In the female the exopod of P5 bears 3 distinct lateral and 2 terminal prominences, while the endopod is simply spiniform. The posterolateral prosomal corners of L. cervi are remarkably large compared to those of L. caudata. These 2 species are considered as the L. cervi species group. McKinnon & Kimmerer (1984) pointed out the similarity in the P5 of both sexes of L. caudata, L. madutae, but it appears that the unique structure of the terminal exopodal segment of the male left P5 as a robusy synapomorphy to definethe species group.
Labidocera detruncata is most closely related to L.farrani in sharing the following synapomorphies (common possession of a derived homologous character): 1- the complex, dorsal swelling on the genital compound somite of the female; 2- the anal somite of the female ptotruded mid-posteriorly; 3- the caudal rami of the female are largely separated, and the right ramus is larger than the left; 4- the basis of the female P5 is swollen; 5- the male right P5 has a spatulate thumb; 6- the terminal segment of the male left P5 has 4 elements, the 2nd outermost of which is the longest. These 2 species belongs to L. detruncata species group sensu stricto<. L. detruncata is widely distributed in oceanic waters of the Indo Pacific and West Atlantic regions, while L. farrani has a distribution in coastal waters of Indo-West Pacific.
Labidocera pavo, L. bataviae share the features in the female: 1- the female caudal rami are broadly separated and posterolaterally expanded; 2- the exopod of the female P5 is slender, with 3 lateral and 2 terminal distinct prominences; 3- the endopod of the female P5 is short, at most 1/3 to 1/4 as long as the exopod; 4- the thumb of the 1st exopodal segment of the male right P5 is bifid; 5- the terminal exopodal segment of the male right P5 is slender, and carries 3 fine elements. Thes 2 species belong to the L. pavo species group.

Rem.: Crisafi (1960) writes the history of the genus as well as its various synonymies. The author concludes that the law of precedence is in favor of the genus Monops Lubbock, 1853. The characters defining the genus Monops seem sufficient for the genus to be maintained, as well as the opinion, formulated by Crisafi seems quite justified. Giesbrecht (1892) synonymises Monops grandis and Pontella regaliss but conserves the name of the genus established by Lubbock. However in 1898, Giesbrecht and Schmeil refer to the genus Pontellopsis, created by Brady (1883) acknowledging a certain generic importance to the presence or absence of hooks at the head, whereas Lubbock does not mention this. One notices that the genus Labidocera comprises species with or without lateral hooks, which undermines the supremacy of this criterium. The number and the arrangement of the occular lenses does appear to be fundamental to perform generic clipping, giving so reason to Lubbock. However, by consequence of the acquired pattern and because of the fact that there are no inconveniences to retain the genus of Brady, it appears preferable to leave the decisions on correct denominations to the author of a future revision of the Pontellidae family.
Type: Pontellopsis villosa Brady, 1883. Total: 25 spp. + 2 undetermined (Several doubtful species).

Diagnosis from Bradford-Grieve (1999, p.205) :
- As in the family definition.
- Head and pedigerous segment 1 separate, 4th and 5th pedigerous segments fused.
- Head without lateral hooks or dorsal or rostral lenses.
- Last thoracic segment extending posteriorly into a point, most often asymmetrical in the male.
- Urosome asymmetrical in both sexes; 1- or 2-segmentedin the female.
Male urosomal segment 3 with a projection on the right.
- A1 of female 16-segmented.
- Prehensile male A1 swollen in the middle, terminal part 2-segmented.
- Mx2 distal setae large and spinous .
Mxp 5-segmented.
- Legs as in Pontella.
