Boxshall & Halsey (2004, p.135) confirm the presence of paired gonopores in adult females after examination of inseminated females. Inseminated females carry a single ovoid mass of sperm cemented over the median copulatory pore. This probably represents a spermatophoral mass formed by the discharged contents of the spermatophore, rather the spermatophore itself.
