Terminal segment with 1 inner marginal which is 2 times as long as the terminal spine. Terminal spine set closely to the inner marginal spine. Remarks: P5 shows a considerable degree of variation, sometimes with an abnormal pair of legs which has a rudimentary endopod (fig.i); another specimen had a pair of legs having 2 more spines on the outer margin, one on the opposite of the inner marginal spine, and the another at the base of the terminal spine.

Terminal spine of exopod with 50 teeth. The arrangement of spinules on posterior surface of the 2nd exopodal segment as in female, and differs from that figured by Sars (1924, Pl. 50, fig.20, as Scolecithrix emarginata) : the 2nd row of spinules are more in number(, whereas in Sars' figure the 2nd row is composed of only 2 large spinules. - P3 and P4 with each 39 and 35 teeth on the terminal spine of exopod. - P5 resembles that of Amallothrix obtusifrons Sars. The segments are all slender. Distal segments of the right leg and the endopod of the left leg missing. Exopod of left leg more slender than that of A. obtusifrons.

issued from : C.C. Davis in Univ. Wash. Publs Biol., 1949, 14. [Pl.7, Figs.90-91]. As Amallothrix inornata With doubt. Female (from NE Pacific): 90, habitus (lateral); 91, P5.
Nota : Head without crest. Head and 1st thoracic segment fused. Lateral corners of the 5th thoracic segment rounded, with an indentation near the upper edge, and another smaller one below. Urosome 1/5 the length of metasome, and consists of 4 segments. Genital segment nearly as long as the next two together, while the 2nd segment is slightly longer than the 3rd ; anal segment , when the animal is viewed from side, is visible ventrally , very short (dorsally completely telescoped into the 3rd segment). A1 23-segmented, reach slightly beyond the caudal rami. 1st exopod segment of P1 with an outer border spine. P5 2-segmented, the terminal segment bears 2 spines ; there is a short apical spine and a longer spine fairly near it subterminally on the inner border ; both spines are provided with fine hairs.
For Davis, this species is very close to Scolecithrix emarginata Farran (1905). The anal segment of A. inornata is much shorter than that of A. emarginata, and the exact arrangement of the spines on the posterior surface of P2 to P4 is different. The armature of the posterior surface of the endopod of P3 agrees closely with that part which is labelled as the P4 in Esterly’s figure, whereas both disgree in many details with the armature of emarginata as drawn by Sars (1925). For Davis inornata should be considered as a subspecies of emarginata, but it seems better to maintain Esterly’s species.
issued from : C. With in The Danish Ingolf-Expedition, Copepoda I, 1915, III, 4. [p.195, Text-fig. 60]. As Scaphocalanus obtusifrons. Female (from 57°47'N, 11°33'W): a, forehead (lateral); b, basis of left P2 (anterior view); basis of left P4 (anterior view).
Nota: P2 with the outer marginal tooth of the basis well developed, and the inner margin is near the tip produced into a short curved tooth. The terminal seta has about 70 partly fused teeth without the characteristic basal fenestra. Glandular pores seem to be present in exopodal segments 2 and 3. P4 with basis very clumsy without marginal bristles, and suddently restricted near the tip; on the posterior syrface transversely placed short spines were observed in endopodal segment 2, and in a less degree in endopodal segment 3, but the anterior surface is covered all over with areas of more or less delicate teeth; the serration of the terminal setae are more or less fused in the middle; a glandular pore is observed not only in exopodal segments 2 and 3, but in exopodal segment 1 as well.

issued from : C. With in The Danish Ingolf-Expedition, Copepoda I, 1915, III, 4. [p.257, Pl. VII, 9b-d]. As Scaphocalanus obtusifrons. Female: 9b, labrum (anterior view); 9c, same (oral view); 9d, serrula 6-dentata.
Nota : In the anterior portion of the labrum, the anterior curved group of long delicate setae is posteriorly on each side divided into an outer and inner portion ; i, the middle an anteriorly convex row is found ; for further details see the figure. The oral surface of the labrum (fig.9c) shows a rather characteristic structure, bearing most resemblance to that of Scottocalanus ; the first oblique group of the longitudinal series is smaller than in Scaphocalanus magnus, and it is followed by two or three more or less fused groups of fairly long setae, between which the transverse median rows are placed, behind the mentioned groups an oblique one of more slender hairs, corresponding to the square one of Scaphocalanus magnus is found. Laterally, in front, two groups of delicate hairs are found. No distinct lamina labialis was observed ; in front of the serrula 6-dentata an inner and an outer longitudinal series where found (fig.9d) ; the arrangement of hairs between and behind the serrulae was not studied in details. In the middle, between the labial lobes, a large median group of setae was found, which on each lobe is continued into two lateral series placed closely to each other ; more laterally, well separated from this system, a lateral row of shorter setae, starting from a basal group. The intestinal tract is anteriorly produced into a rather slender rostral coecal sac ; posteriorly the wide stomach is attenuated, an dis, somewhat in front of the abdomen, continued through a slight curvature into the straight intestine proper.
