Female (from Cilacap Bay, Indian Ocean): a, habitus (dorsal); b, forehead (lateral); c, 5th metasomal somite and urosome (lateral right side); d, idem (dorsal); e, A1; f, rostrum (anterior view).
Nota: Posterolateral ends of 5th metasomal somite produced into asymmetrical acuminate lobes, left lobe longer than right, not reaching middle of urosomite 1. Rostrum bifid, asymmetrical, directed ventrally, witout lenses. Dorsal eye lenses distint and rounded.. Urosome 2-segmented. Caudal rami asymmetrical, right ramus slightly longer than left, each bearing 5 plumose and 1 small setae. A1 24-segmented, reaching distal end of 3rd metasomal somite.

Species Pontella kleini - Plate 3 of morphological figuresIssued from : Mulyadi in Crustaceana, 2003, 76 (4). [p.390, Fig.4].
Male (from Cilacap Bay, S. Java): a, habitus (dorsal); b, forehead (lateral); c, 4th and 5th metasomal somites and urosome (lateral right side); d, geniculate region of right A1; e, P5.
Nota: Rostrum bulbous with bifid, short conical projections. Dorsal eye lenses small and rostral eye lens well developed. Posterolateral ends of 5th metasomal somite produced into asymmetrical, short and pointed lobes, reacing distal ends of urosomite 1.

According to Mulyadi (2003, p.400) this species may be an endemic, which has a preference for low salinity. The species belongs to "P. labuanensis"-Group of Mulyadi, 1997. (See in Table I, in P. labuanensis).
