Distal segment with a strong inner marginal spine, coarsely denticulated along the anterior margin; terminal spine short, about 1/3 the length of the inner marginal spine; there is on the outer margin 1 small spine at base ot the terminal spine, and 1 small outer marginal spine opposite to the inner marginal spine. Posterior surface of segments furnished with a group of spines.

Nota Male: - Cephalothorax about 2 times the abdomen lenth. - 4th and 5th pedigers incompletely fused, line of fusion clearly seen in lateral aspect. - Rostrum as in female, but the basal rami much stronger. - Urosome 5-segmented; segments and caudal rami in proportional lengths 9 : 32 : 27 : 25 : 2 : 5 = 100. - 2nd and 3rd abdominal segments fringed with fine teeth on the distal border. - Caudal rami divergent, a little wider than long. - A1 20-segmented on left sie, 19-segmented on right side; extends to the distal end of the 2nd abdominal segment. - A2 exopod 1.2 times as long as endopod; 1st exopodal segment furnished with short hairs along the anterior margin. - Md and Mx1 as in female. - Mx2 bears 5 bud-like sensory filaments and 4 worrm-like on the distal segments, one of the latter is much larger than the others. - P1 with 1 outer edge spine on , extending to the middle of the 2nd segment. - P2 with 1 outer edge spine on the 1st exopodal segment, curved considerably at the distal end. Terminal spine of exopod with 32 teeth. - P3 with on the 2nd basal segment (= basis) rows of spinules along anterior distal border. Terminal spine of exopod with 20 teeth.

Nota Female (as Amallothrix propinqua): - Posterolateral corners of the last thoracic segment slightly obtusely rounded. - Rostrum comparatively shorter than A. gracilis, but of the same structure. - Urosome length about 1/4 of prosome. - Genital segment as long as two following segments together, slightly swollen ventrally. - Caudal rami small and slightly divergent. - A1 reaches end of caudal rami. - A2, mouthparts and swimming legs similar to those A. gracilis. - P5 resembles those A. gracilis, distinctly biarticulate; proximal segment shorter than distal and hairies outside at end; distal segment furnished with of number rigid hairies outside, segment obliquely truncate at yje extremity and with 2 spines, 1 inner very strong and 1 smaller at apex.
