Nota Female: - Cephalothorax about 4.13 times the abdomen length. - Head and 1st pediger segment fused, 4th and 5th pedigers fused, line of fusion not observed. - Posterolateral corners of the last thoracic segment slightly indented on margin. - Rostrum with 2 strong spines terminating into fine point. - Abdomen 4-segmented; segments and caudal rami in the proportional lengths 43 : 18 : 18 : 9 : 12 = 100. - Genital segment not swollen ventrally. - Anal segment short. - Caudal rami as long as wide. - A2 20-segmented, extends to the posterior margin of the 2nd abdominal segment. Segments 1-2, 8-9-10, 24-25 are fused., segments 12 and 13 partially fused. - A2 exopod slightly longer than endopod (7 : 5). - Mx1 with 7 long and 2 short setae on outer lobe; 7 setae on exopod; 6 setae on endopod; 3 setae on the 2nd basal; 3 setae on the 3rd inner lobe; 2 setae on the 2nd inner lobe; 9 setae on the 1st inner lobe (= arthrite). - Mx2 with 3 long vermiform and 5 bud-like sensory filaments on endopod. - Mxp with the 1st basal segment slightly shorter than the 2nd. - P1 exopod 3-segmented and endopod 1-segmented; exopodal segment 1 without marginal spine; coxa with a row of spinules. - P2 with exopod 3-segmented and endopod 2-segmented; the 2nd and 3rd exopodal segments and the 2nd endopodal segment are furnished with rows of spinules on the posterior surface; coxa xery finely denticulated on proximal half of the outer margin; basis with a small spine on inner margin about the middle. - P3 and P4 with exopod and endopod each 3-segmented. - P4 with coxa finely serrated on outer distal margin; there is a small protuberance near the outer distal margin; the segment has a transverse row of spinules at the base of the small inner marginal seta on posterior surface; basis with a rounded process near the inner distal margin where the endopod articulates. - P5 absent.
Nota Male (from Suruga Bay): - Cephalothorax about 2.95 the abdomen length. - Urosome 5-segmented; abdominal segments and caudal rami in the proportional lengths 17 : 33 : 17 : 21 ; 5 : 7 = 100. - Caudal rami as long as wide. - A1 18-segmented on the left side, reaches back to the distal end of the 2nd abdominal segment; segments 8-13, 20-21 and 24-25 fused, segment 12 and 13 fused on the posterior margin. - A2 exopod slightly longer than endopod. - Md robust. - Mx1 ith 7+2 setae on outer lobe. - Mx2 with long vermiform filaments on endopod. - Mxp robust. - P1 to P4 as those of the female. - P5 reaches back to the caudal rami; left leg with endopod very small; exopod 3-segmented, the distal segment carries a thin lamellous plate on the apex. Endopod of right leg triangular in shape, carries a slender spine at apex; distal segment of exopod slender.
