Ref.:
Krsinic, 2005 (p.282, figs.F,M)
Species Badijella jalzici - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : F. Krsinic in Mar. Biol. Res., 2005, 1. [p.283, Fig.1].
Female (from Badija Island, Croatia): A-B, habitus (dorsal and lateral, respectively; C, rostrum (frontal); D, urosome and caudal rami (dorsal).
Nota : Prosome : Urosome plus caudal rami ratio = 2.3-2.7 : 1. Proportional lengths of urosomites 47 :16 :24 :13 = 100 ; Genital double-somite slightly longer than wide ; genital area symmetrical, located mid-ventrally, with common genital operculum, internal genital apertures and seminal receptacles paired ; on the genital operculum with pair of external processes. Posterior margins of urosomites fringed with striated hyaline frill. Anal somite with 2 unequal triangular hyaline teeth on distal margin. Caudal rami symmetrical, about 2.5 longer than wide, armed wiith 1 short sub-distal dorsal seta and 5 distal setae (seta III spiniform, setae IV and V pinnate and long, dorsal distal margin of rami with 1 triangular tooth.


Species Badijella jalzici - Plate 2 of morphological figuresissued from : F. Krsinic in Mar. Biol. Res., 2005, 1. [p.284, Fig.2].
Female: A, urosome with spermatophore attached (lateral); B, genital double-somite (ventral); C-D, A1.
Nota: A1 symmetrical, 26-segmented, reaching almost to end of prosome.


Species Badijella jalzici - Plate 3 of morphological figuresissued from : F. Krsinic in Mar. Biol. Res., 2005, 1. [p.285, Fig.3].
Female: A, A2; B, Md; C, Mx1; D, Mx2; e, Mxp.
Nota : A2 with exopod 7-segmented ; endopod 2-segmented, extending beyond terminal exopod segment. Mx1 with praecoxal arthrite bearing 14 elements (9 pectinate spines, 4 setae on posterior side and 1 anterior seta) ; coxal epipodite with 9 setae and coxal endite with 4 setae ; basal endites with 4 and 5 setae ; exopod bearing 11 marginal setae ; endopod 3-segmented bearing 17 elements (probably arranged 5, 5, 7). Mx2 praecoxal with 2 endites, bearing 7 setae and 3 setae each ; basal endite armed with 4 setae ; endopodal segments armed with 6 setae. Mxp : syncoxa as long as basis, bearing 3 endites (1st with 2 setae, 2 nd with 1 seta and row of spinules on medial margin, 3rd with 2 setae ; basis with 3 setae and 2 rows of spinules on medial margin ; endopod 6-segmented, setal formula 2, 4, 4, 3, 2+1 and 2+1 on terminal segment ; setae on 3rd segment with specialized ornamentation of spinules along one margin.


Species Badijella jalzici - Plate 4 of morphological figuresissued from : F. Krsinic in Mar. Biol. Res., 2005, 1. [p.286, Fig.4].

Male: A, urosome (dorsal); B, right A1 (geniculate part from ancestral segment X to tip); C, P5 (posterior).
Nota: A1 asymmetrical, reaching almost to end of 3rd urosomite; left A1 as in female; right A1 with 23 free segments and two areas of geniculation, proximal geniculation between segments XV and XVI, distal geniculation between segment XX and fused ancestral segments XXI to XXIII; distal part of right A1 bent backwards.
