Diagnosis for L. lubbocki in the 'darwinii' species group after Prusova & Al-Yamani (2014, p.1165) :
Females:
- 1: Urosome of 3 somites.
- 2: Genital somite asymmetrical, caudal rami of approximately equal length.
- 3: Caudal rami symmetrical, or roughly symmetrical, separate from anal somite.
- 4: Exopod of nearly symmetrical P5 with 2 or 3 terminal points, genital pore ventro-lateral.
- 5: P5 exopod with 2 terminal points, inner one larger.
- 6: 2nd urosomal somite without left lateral swelling proximally.
Males:
- 1: Urosome of 5 somites.
- 2: Prosome posterior corners asymmetrical, right corner longer or modified.
- 3: Prosome posterior corners strongly asymmetrical, with 3 prominent spiniform prongs on right, lateral-most the largest.
- 4: Lateral-most prosomal prong not curved in lateral view;
- 5: Dorsal-most prosomal prong less than 1/4 length of lateral-most prong; P5 exopodal segment 1 with relatively narrow triangle process medially.
