Species Parkius sp. - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : G.D. Grice & K. Huisemann in Proc. U.S. natn. Mus., 1967, 122 (3583). [p.52, Figs.85-91, p.53, Figs.92-95]. As Racovitzanus sp.
Male (from Indian Ocean): 85, forehead (lateral); 86,last thoracic segments and urosome (lateral right side); 87, rostrum (ventral view); 88, right A1; ; 89, Md (cutting edge); 90, Mx1; 91, Mx2; 92, basipodal segments of Mxp; 93, distal segments of Mxp (enlarged); 94, P5; 95, distal segments of left P5.

Nota: Head and 1st thoracic segment separate, 4th and 5th separate. Rostrum large, without filaments. A1 exceeds furca by last segment. Right A1: segments 8-10 fused. Mxp greatly reduced and with few setaePosterior lateral corner of 5th thoracic segment indented.

Grice & Hulsemann (1967, p.26) tentatively assign this male to the genus Racovitzanus based on the shape of the rostrum. Contestable attribution in this genus (transfered in the genus Parkius).
