Spinocalanus aspinosus  Park, 1970   (F)
Ref.:
Park, 1970 (p.475, 489, Descr.F, figs.F); Damkaer, 1975 (p.59, Rem.F); Bode & al., 2017 (p.600, Table I, fig. 2, 3, 4, morphology vs genetic).
Species Spinocalanus aspinosus - Plate 1 of morphological figuresIssued from : T. S. Park in Bull. Mar. Sc., 1970, 20 (2). [p.490, Figs.59-61];
Female (from Caribbean Sea): 59, habitus (dorsal); 60, idem (lateral right side); 61, basipod of Mxp.
Nota: Lateral side of metasome without spinules.


Species Spinocalanus aspinosus - Plate 2 of morphological figuresIssued from : M. Bode, S. Laakmann, P. Kaiser, W. Hagen, H. Auel & A. Cornils in J. Plankton Res., 2017, 39 (4). [p.604, Table I].
Species identified via morphological and molecular analyses, including the number of specimens used for each identification method (MI: morphological identification, COI: cytochrome c oxydase subunit I gene fragment, MS: MALDI-TOF analysis, 18 S: ribosomal 18 S gene fragment).
Cryptic lineages were revealed only after molecular analysis.
Sampling depth, latitude, total length (TL) and Prosome/Urosome ratio (Pr:Ur) of taxon were recorded.
morphological characters are only listed here, if the identification was ambiguous due to missing body parts or if cryptic or pseudocryptic lineages were revealed during molecular analyses.
For diagnostic character of species refer to the references: Park, 1970; Grice, 1971; Damkaer, 1975; Schulz, 1989, 1996.
C = coxa; B = basis; P = swimming legs.
