Rem.: According to Suarez-Morales & al. (2006, p.104) suggest that the species should be transferred to Monstrilla because the presence of 5 caudal setae, the lack of an inner lobe on P5 and the location of the oral papilla (more than 0.25 of the way back along the ventral cephalothorax). Proposition adopted by Vives & Shmeleva (2010, p.172).
After Grygier & Suarez-Morales (2018, p.502), reexamination and redescription of this form are necessary.
