Syn.: Euaugaptilus lamellifer : Sewell, 1948 (p.558, 563)
Esterly, 1911 (p.329, Descr.F, figs.F); Brodsky, 1950 (1967) (p.371, figs.F); Fleminger, 1967 a (p.XII, 21, tabl.1); Matthews, 1972 (p.46)
Species Augaptilus lamellifer - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : C.O. Esterly in Univ. Calif. Publs Zool., 1911, 6 (14). [Pl.26, Fig.8];
Female (from San Diego Region); sample in vertical haul from 0-100 m): 8, habitus (lateral).
Nota: Cephalothorax about 3 times as long as the urosome. Genital segment somewhat longer than the 2nd and 3rd segments together, and the caudal rami as long as the genital segment and half the second one; the 3rd segment is half as long as the genital. A1 exceed the length of the body by their 4 terminal segments. Mxp very long and slender, the two basal segments being just one-fourth the length of the body.

Distribution map of Augaptilus lamellifer by geographical zones
California (San Diego)
N: 1
(143) F: 4,4; {F: 4,40}
Rem.: meso-bathypelagic. Recorded off California at a depth less than 600 m (Matthews, 1972).
For Brodsky, 1950 (1967, p.371) the status of this species is uncertain. Fleminger (1967 a) suggests, with doubt, that this species would be synonym to Augaptilus anceps.
