Species Copilia hendorffi - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : A. Steuer in Zool. Zh., 1907, 31 (26). [p.899, Fig.2].
Male: 2, Mxp.


Species Copilia hendorffi - Plate 2 of morphological figuresissued from : H.K. Unterüberbacher in Investl Rep. mar. Res. Lab. S.W. Afr., 1964, 11. [Pl.32]. As Copilia sp. With doubt.
Female (from off Namibia): habitus (dorsal); A2; Ansgm, anal segment.
Nota: Distance between the eye-lenses is about 2.5 to 3.0 times that of their own diameter. 3rd segment of A2 is 0.55-0.62times as long as the 2nd segment. (possibly the females were not yet quite adult).

Male: habitus (dorsal); A2; Mxp.
Nota: The well-marked protuberance on Mxp lies distal from the middle of the segment. The 4 segments of A2 show the proportions: 1.0 : 0.62 : 0.45 : 0.64.

Female: 1, habitus (dorsal); 2, urosome (dorsal); 3, distal corner of anal segment (ventral); 4, left caudal ramus; 5, A2; 6, A2 (segment 3); 7, P4.
Ri = endopodite; Re = exopodite.


Species Copilia hendorffi - Plate 4 of morphological figuresissued from : C. Lehnhofer in Wiss. Ergebn. dt. Tiefsee-Exped. ''Valdivia'', 1926, 23 (1). [p.130, Textfig.8].
