Female (from Kuril-Kamchatka Trench). r, rostrum (frontal view); pbs, spine-like process on outer margin of basis of P1.

Species Lucicutia profunda - Plate 3 of morphological figuresLucicutia profunda male:
1 - P1 with 2-segmented endopod;
2 - Caudal rami less than 10 times longer than wide.
3 - Inner distal corner of basis of P5 without strong spine.
4 - Basis of left P5 ornamented differently from L. oblonga.
5 - Caudal rami about 3 to 5 times longer than wide.
6 - A1 at most reaching to end of caudal rami; basis of left P5 different from L. longiserrata.
7 - Cephalosome without lateral spinous projections (in dorsal view); right A1 reaching only to tip of caudal rami; inner margin of basis of right P5 with small tooth-like projection; inner distal corner of basis of left leg not ending in single point.
8 - Lateral spinous processes on cephalosome directed posterolaterally; caudal rami shorter than urosome.
9 - Caudal rami 8 to 9 times longer than wide.
