Scale bars: 0.100 mm.

Nota: Last thoracic segment (Th6) with 0-7 dorsal spines (average 4), posteroventral margin of segment without hairs. Length : width ratio of genital complex in dorsal view 1.16. Lateral faces of genital segment with rows of denticles. Posterodorsal margin of genital complex with denticles in 95% of specimens. Length : width ratio of caudal rami in dorsal view 2.73.


Species Acartia (Acartiura) sp. (L) - Plate 3 of morphological figuresissued from : A.D. McKinnon, W.J. Kimmerer & J.A.H. Benzie in J. Crustacean Biol., 1992, 12 (2). [p.252, Fig.6, c-d].
