Bradford, 1972 (p.40, figs.F)
Species Pseudochirella sp. - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : J.M. Bradford in Mem. N. Z. Oceonogr. Inst., 1972, 54. [p.41, Fig.8, (1-6)].
Female (from Kaikoura, New Zealand): 1, habitus (dorsal); 2, forehead (lateral); 3, genital segment (lateral, right side); 4, basipod segment 1 of P4; 5, A2; 6, exopod of P1.
Scale bars: 1 mm (1); 0.1 mm (2-6).

Nota: Endopod of Mx1 with 20 setae. Remarkable for the projections on the right side of the female genital segment and its ventral protuberance.
As the only specimen captured had unequally developed spination on the basipods of P4, and may therefore be a deformed member of an already described species, it is not designated as new.
