Euaugaptilus indicus  Sewell, 1932   (F)
Sewell, 1932 (p.319, figs.F); Sewell, 1947 (p.201, figs. juv.5); Silas, 1972 (p.649, Rem.); Matthews, 1972 (p.33); Tanaka & Omori, 1974 (p.224, figs.F, Rem.F); Ali-Khan & Ali-khan, 1984 (p.305)
Species Euaugaptilus indicus - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : O. Tanaka & M. Omori in Publs Seto Mar. Biol. Lab., 1974, XXI (3/4). [p.225, Fig.14].
Female: a, forehead (lateral); b, last thoracic segment and urosome (lateral left side); c, rostrum (frontal view); d, Md (mandibular palp); e, Mx1; f, Mx2; g, Mxp; h, P1; i, P5.
Nota: The urosome segments and furca are in the proportional lengths as 40:10:17:33 = 100. Prosome and urosome are in the proportional lengths as 77:23.
The Izu region's specimen differs from the description of Sewell (1932, 1947) in number of setae on the exopod of Mx1
