Euaugaptilus sublongiseta  Park, 1970   (F)
Park, 1970 (p.478, 527, figs.F); Matthews, 1972 (p.42, 66, Rem.); Tanaka & Omori, 1974 (p.255, figs.F, Rem.)
Species Euaugaptilus sublongiseta - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : O. Tanaka & M. Omori in Publs Seto Mar. Biol. Lab., 1974, XXI (3/4). [p.256, Fig.29].
Female (from Izu region): a, forehead (lateral); b, idem (dorsal, rostrum underneath); c, last thoracic segment and urosome (lateral left side); d, idem (dorsal); e, genital segment (ventral); f, A2; g, Md; h, Mx1; i, Mx2; j, Mxp; k, P1; l, P2; m, P5.
Nota: The urosome segments and furca are in the proportional lengths as 51:17:14:18 = 100. Prosome and urosome are in the proportional lengths as 79:21. A1 extends beyondthe end of the furca by 3 segments.

Species Euaugaptilus sublongiseta - Plate 2 of morphological figuresissued from : O. Tanaka & M. Omori in Publs Seto Mar. Biol. Lab., 1974, XXI (3/4). [p.200, Fig.3,c].
Female (from Izu region): c, mandibular teeth.

Species Euaugaptilus sublongiseta - Plate 3 of morphological figuresIssued from : T. S. Park in Bull. Mar. Sc., 1970, 20 (2). [p.528, Figs.277-288].
Female: 277, habitus (dorsal); 278, idem (lateral left side); 279, urosome (ventral); 280, forehead (ventral); 281, A2; 282, Md (mandibular blade); 283, Md (mandibular palp); 284, Mx1; 285, Mx2; 286, Mxp; 287, P1 (anterior); 288, P5 (anterior).
Nota: Exopod of A2 8-segmented, proximal seven segments each with a small seta. Mx1 with 1 seta on 3rd inner lobe , 3 setae on basis, 6 setae on exopod, 6 setae on outer lobe.

Distribution map of Euaugaptilus sublongiseta by geographical zones
Caribbean Sea, Caribbean Colombia, ? Japan (Izu region)

Type locality: 11°03'N, 78°43'W.
N: 3
(88) F: 1,86; (68) F: 2,3; {F: 1,86-2,30}
Rem.: Mesopelagic. Known to occur at a depth less than 1500 m (Matthews, 1972).
For Park (1970, p.529) this species is related to E. longiseta Grice & Hülsemann (1965), but can be distinguished from it by the smaller body, relatively long genital segment, and relatively short A1.
Tanaka & Omori (1974, p.257) doubt imputation of their specimen to this species.
