Species Labidocera nerii - Plate 8 of morphological figuresIssued from : J.M. Bradford-Grieve, E.L. Markhaseva, C.E.F. Rocha & B. Abiahy in South Atlantic Zooplankton, edit. D.

- Anterior cephalosome without crest, rounded in dorsal view.
- Cephalosome without lateral hooks.

Male characters (from key, p.959):
- Right P5exopodal segment1-2 with elongate, distally rounded process which originated very close to 'thumb'.
- Left P5 terminal segment with 3-4 distal spines.
- Right P5 basis relatively short, shorter than or only slightly longer than than exopodal segment 1.
- Left P5 basis not expecially produced distally.
