Ref.:
Böttger-Schnack, 1999 (p.43, 112, Descr.F, figs.F); Böttger-Schnack & al., 2001 (p.1029, tab.1); Böttger-Schnack & al., 2004 (p.1130, tab.1, Rem.)
Species Triconia gonopleura - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : R. Böttger-Schnack in Mitt. hamb. zool. Mus. Inst., 1999, 96 [p.110, Fig.34].
Female (from Red Sea): A, habitus (dorsal); B, urosome (dorsal); C, idem (lateral left side); D, P6 (left and right side); E, A1; F, caudal ramus (dorsal); G, P5.
Nota: Proportional lengths (%) of urosomites and caudal rami 10.7:52.7:8.6:7.2:10.0:10.7. Relative lengths (%) of segments of A1 measured along posterior non-setigerous margin 8.5:21.2:43.2:13.6:6.8:6.8. Anal somite 1.6 times wider than long. Caudal ramus about 1.5 times longer than wide.

Female: A, A2 (anterior); B, labrum (anterior); C, idem (posterior); D, Md (showing individual elements); E, Mx1; F, Mx2; G, Mxp (syncoxa slightly damaged).


Species Triconia gonopleura - Plate 3 of morphological figuresissued from : R. Böttger-Schnack in Mitt. hamb. zool. Mus. Inst., 1999, 96 [p.113, Fig.36].
Female: A, P1 (anterior); B, P2 (anterior); C, P3 (anterior, position of missing basal seta arrowed); D, P4 (anterior).

Rem.: For Böttger-Schnack (1999, p.114) this species is very close to T. umerus, but clearly differs frm it in the form of the genital double-somite; the position and ornamentation of the genital apertures; the fusion of P5 exopod and the length to width ratio of the caudal ramus and anal somite.
