Candacia ishimarui  Mulyadi, 1997   (F,M)
Mulyadi, 1997 a (p.72, figs.F,M); Mulyadi, 2004 (p.95, figs.F,M, Rem.);
Species Candacia ishimarui - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : Mulyadi in Treubia, 1997, 31 (2). [p.73, Fig.1].
Female (from 07°29'S, 121°05'E): A, habitus (dorsal); B, forehead (lateral); C, 5th matasomal somite and urosome (lateralleft side); D, idem (dorsal); E, genital somite (ventral); F, A1; G, A2; H, Md (mandibular palp); I, Md (mandibular blade); J, Mx1; K, Mx2; L, Mxp.

Nota: 4th and 5th metasomal somites fued. A1 24-segmented, reaching middle of urosomite 2. Md blade with 1 sharp tooth and 1 basal process tricuspidate apically, middle cusp being largest. In dorsal view urosomite 1 slightly asymmetrical, broader distally, in lateralview with 1 small ventral knob-like protrusion

Species Candacia ishimarui - Plate 2 of morphological figuresissued from : Mulyadi in Treubia, 1997, 31 (2). [p.74, Fig.2].
Male: A, habitus (dorsal); B, 5th metasomal somite and urosome (dorsal); C, genital somite (dorsal); D, 5th metasomal somite and urosomal segments 1 and 2 (lateral right side); E, 16th to 20th segments of right A1; F, P5 (posterior view).

Female: G, P1; H, P2; I, P3; J, P4; K, P5.

Nota: P5 uniramous, asymmetrical; right leg: basipod 2 with 1 spine-like seta at posterior surface near distal end, exopod with 3 outer spines, and 3 inner setae, bilobed at apex, outer onelonger; left leg: nasipod 2 with 1 spine-like seta on posterior surface near distal end, exopod with 2 outer spines and 3 setae. Distal end of right metasomal somite 5 corner reaches to about mid-length of urosomite 1; genital process on right margin is scarcely visible in dorsal view.

For Mulyadi (1997, p.76) this species forms a species-group ("norvegica-group" with C. kechumi and C. norvegica. The species is more closely related to C. kechumi, collected from the Sargasso Sea than C. norvegica.
