Distribution map of Paraeuchaeta robusta by geographical zones
Loc:
off Cape Verde Is., off E Tristan da Cunha
N: 2
Lg.:
(10) F: 7,8; {F: 7,8}
Rem.: For Wolfenden (1911, p.300) this species resembles Paraeuchaeta barbata.
? Perhaps Paraeuchaeta barbata.
For Grice & Hulsemann (1957, p.25) the females from the Indian Ocean differs from Wolfenden (1911) by the absence of hair on the 5th thoracic segment and by a longer 2nd abdominal segment. The first three abdominal segments have a relative length of 20:10:10 (in Wolfenden the ratio is 20:17:15)
