Ohtsuka & al., 1998 (p.416, figs.F, juv.M, fig.7: chart)
Espèce Platycopia compacta - Planche 1 de figures morphologiquesissued from : S. Ohtsuka, H.Y. Soh & H. Ueda in Zool. Sc., 1998, 15; [p.417, Fig.1].
Female (from Kuchino Is., S Japan): A, habitus (dorsal); B, idem (lateral left side, intermaxillipedal process arrowed); C, rostrum; D, urosome (ventral, gonopores arrowed); E, anal somite and caudal rami (dorsal); F, intermaxillipedal process (ventral view).
Scale bars in mm.
Nota: Cephalosome and 1st pedigerous somite incompletely fused, 4th and 5th separate. Rostrum without filaments at tip. Urosome 5-segmented. Genital somite small (almost concealed beneath dorsal extension of 5th pedigerous somite, paired llit-like gonopores (arrowed in fig.1D). 1st to 3rd abdominal somites with postero margin finely striated; 3rd abdominal somite protruded dorsoposteriorly into w-shaped plate covering anus; 4th abdominal somite prominent ventroposteriorly. Caudal rami symmetrical, each with triangular dorsal process.

Distribution of several species of the genus Platycopia. 1, P. compacta; 2, P. orientalis; 3, P. perplexa & pygmaea (Sars); 4, P. perplexa; 5, P. robusta; 6, P. sarsi & tumidila (M.S. Wilson); 7, P. inornata.

Rem.: epibenthic (depth: 67 m).
After Ohtsuka & al. (1998), the platycopioids, based on their circumglobal distribution, suggested that it exhibit a Tethyan track.
