Euaugaptilus paroblongus  Matthews, 1972   (F)
Matthews, 1972 (p.12, 39, Descr.F, figs.F)
Species Euaugaptilus paroblongus - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : J.B.L. Matthews in Bull. Br. Mus. (Nat. Hist.) Zool., 1972, 24 (1). [p.13, Fig.5].
Female (from 28°07'N, 14°07'W): A-B, habitus (lateral and dorsal, respectively); C, Md (biting part of mandibular gnathobase).
A and B to scale I; C to scale II.

Species Euaugaptilus paroblongus - Plate 2 of morphological figuresissued from : J.B.L. Matthews in Bull. Br. Mus. (Nat. Hist.) Zool., 1972, 24 (1). [p.14, Fig.6].
Female: A, A2; B, Md; C, Mx1; D, Mx2; E, Mxp; F, P1; G, P2; H, P3; I, P4; J, P5.

Nota: Mx1 possesses all lobes but no free endopodite. The three endites possess 8, 1 and 1 setae, respectively. The basipodite 3 setae, of which the most distal probably represents endopodite setation. The exopodite possesses 1 long, 2 medium and 2 short setae and the exite 3 setae. The innermost and outermost of the long setae on the exopodite possess well developed setules giving a plumose effect; the other long setae are more sparsely provided with setules.

Distribution map of Euaugaptilus paroblongus by geographical zones
NE Atlant. (Canary Is.)
N: 1
(308) F: 8,2; {F: 8,20}
Rem.: bathypelagic. Recorded at a depth between 940 and 700 m (Matthews, 1972).
For Matthews (1972, p.16) this species appears to be most closely related to E. oblongus. It is distinguished by the longer rostral filaments, details of the mandibular teeth and the setae on Mx1, and by the reduced number of spines on the exopodite of P1, though the last of these is obviously a variable character.

In ''squamatus" Group after Matthews (1972, p.64) {See remarks in Euaugaptilus genus}.
