Species Bradfordiella kurchatovi - Plate 2 of morphological figuresissued from : V.N. Andronov in Zool. Zh, 2007, 86 (5). [p.631, Fig.2].Fig.1].
Female: 1, P1; 2, P2; 3, P3 (exopodal segments 2-3 missing); 4, P4 (exopodal segments 2-3 missing); 5, P5; 6, rostrum (frontal view).

Distribution map of Bradfordiella kurchatovi by geographical zones
NE Atlant. (21°21'N, 22°20'W)
N: 1
(1052) F: 1,75; {F: 1,75}
Rem.: probably abyssal, hyperbebthic (depth: 4560 m).
For Andronov (2007) the presence of at least 6 modified setae on the endopod of Mx2 shows that species belongs to the group ''bradfordian'' families.
