Male: a, habitus (dorsal view); Ce, head and first segments of left and right A1 (dorsal).

Compl. Ref.:
Furuhashi, 1966 a (p.295, vertical distribution in Oyashio/Kuroshio regions,Table 10); Deevey & Brooks, 1977 (p.256, tab.2, Station "S"); Homma & al., 2011 (p.29, Table 2, abundance, feeding pattern: suspension feeders)

Distribution map of Spinocalanus pseudospinipes by geographical zones
Japan, SW Bösö (E middle Japan), NW Pacif., Bering Sea, S Aleutian Basin, ? Sargasso Sea: off Bermuda (in Deevey & Brooks, 1977, Station "S": 32°10'N, 64°30'W),
N: 4
(131) M: 1,8; {M: 1,80}
Rem.: abyssopelagic. Sargasso Sea (Station "S"): 500-2000 m.
Only the male has been maintained and not the female (= S. brevicaudatus ).
It is likely that certain geographic locality records are contestable. I have no information concerning the sex concerning this species in Deevey & Brooks (1977), but probably female.
