Cymbasoma strzeleckii  Suarez-Morales & McKinnon, 2016   (M)
Suarez-Morales & McKinnon, 2016 (p.117, Descr. M, figs. M, Rem.)
Species Cymbasoma strzeleckii - Plate 1 of morphological figuresIssued from : E. Suarez-Morales & A.D. McKinnon in Zootaxa, 2016, 4102. [p.118, Fig.68].
Male (from 38°27.792'S, 145°18.496'E): A, habitus (lateral); B, cephalic region (lateral) with ventral protuberance arrowed; C, same (ventral; D, urosome and genital complex (lateral); E, same (ventral).
Scale bars: A = 200 µm; B-E = 50 µm.

Nota: Cephalothorax representing 49% of total body length.- Pair of dorsal ocelli present, weakly developed; pigment cups medium-sized. Ocelli faintly pigmented.
- Pair of frontal sensilla between antennulary bases.
- Urosome consisting of 5th pedigerous somite with smooth ventral surface, genital somite slightly shorter than 5th pedigerous somite. Genital complex of type II, represented by pair of robust, moderately divergent genital lappets, these being slightly asymmetrical, reaching to halfway down the long anal somite. Rounded protuberant medial process present at common basal joint of lappets; lappets smooth.
- Anal somite about twice as long as preanal somite in dorsal and lateral views, comprising 30% of urosome length; no suture visible on ventral or dorsal surfaces.
- Caudal rami small, subquadrate, approximately 1.1 times as long as wide, about as long as anal somite. Each ramus with 3 setae.

Species Cymbasoma strzeleckii - Plate 2 of morphological figuresIssued from : E. Suarez-Morales & A.D. McKinnon in Zootaxa, 2016, 4102. [p.119, Fig.69].
Male: A, left A1 (dorsal); B, P1; C, P2; D, P3.
Scale bars: A-D = 50 µm.

Nota: A1 5-segmented with segment 5located distal to geniculation, representing 44% of total body length and 80% of cephalothorax length. Length ratio of segments (from 1st to distal) 10.4 : 26.1 : 11.3 : 34.2 = 100

Species Cymbasoma strzeleckii - Plate 3 of morphological figuresIssued from : E. Suarez-Morales & A.D. McKinnon in Zootaxa, 2016, 4102. [p.120].
Male: Armature formula of swimming legs P1 to P4.
