Species Lucicutia pseudopolaris - Plate 5 of morphological figuresLucicutia polaris female:

Cephalosome with slightly projecting and rounded anterior corners and well developed lateral spinous projections; anal somite about as long as wide; caudal rami 11.7 times longer than wide and bowed outwards at base, leaving elliptical space between rami proximally.
2 - P1 with 2-segmented endopod.
3 - Cephalosome not with 2 pairs of lateral spinous projections, but with other forms.
4 - A1 extending to end of caudal ramus or 1 to 2 segments beyond.
5 - Caudal rami about 10 times longer than wide.
