Hyalopontius typicus  Sars, 1909   (F,M)
Syn.: Megapontius gigas Hulsemann, 1965 (p.45, Descr.F, figs.F)
Sars, 1909 (p.6, Descr.F, figs.F); Sars, 1938 (p.38, Fig.F); Boxshall, 1979 (p.244, figs.F,M); Huys & Boxshall, 1991 (p.266, 443, figs.); Boxshall & Halsey, 2004 (p.786: figs.F); Vives & Shmeleva, 2010 (p.400, figs.F,M, Rem.); Laakmann & al., 2019 (p.330, fig. 2, 3, phylogenetic relationships)
Espèce Hyalopontius typicus - Planche 1 de figures morphologiquesissued from : K. Hulsemann in Crustaceana, 1965, 9 (1). [p.46, Figs.1-2]. As Megapontius gigas.
Female (from off E Azores): 1-2, habitus (dorsal and lateral, respectively).

Nota: Proportional lengths of cephalosome: metasome: urosome are 45:17:38. Posterior lateral corners of the 2nd and 3rd metasomal segments are produced into a point. Genital segment exceeds the combined lengths of the succeeding two urosomal segments; the anterior end of the genital segment is expanded at the point where the lateral setae emerge. Caudal rami slightly divergent. A1 11-segmented

Espèce Hyalopontius typicus - Planche 2 de figures morphologiquesissued from : K. Hulsemann in Crustaceana, 1965, 9 (1). [p.47, Figs.3-12]. As Megapontius gigas.
Female: 3, A2; 4, oral cone; 5, ventral view at tip of oral cone (stage III copepodid); 6, Md; 7, tip of Md; 8, Mx1; 9, Mx2; 10, tip of Mx2; 11, Mxp; 12, P1.

Nota: A2 biramous; endopod 2-segmented; a rudimentary 1-segmented exopod bearing 3 setae; there are patches of fine hairs on the anterior side of the proximal segment of the endopod; a row of fine, short hair is present along the entire length of the posterior side of the exopodal apical segment. Emerging from the end of the oral cone (fig.4) is a tube with a trumpet-like opening which is incompletely closed on the anterior side (fig.5); the periphery of the tube bears slender, sac-like appendages. Md without palpus; the slender mandible blade penetrates the cone up to its apical end in such a way that the serrated tips of both blades can be seen from the ventral side. The inner lobe of Mx1 is larger than the outer lobe and bears 3 parallel terminal setae which are recurved and divergent at their tips; 1 strong and 1 very small terminal setae arise from the outer lobe.Mx2 2-segmented. mxp 3-segmented (segments 1 and 2 incompletely separated).

Espèce Hyalopontius typicus - Planche 3 de figures morphologiquesissued from : K. Hulsemann in Crustaceana, 1965, 9 (1). [p.48, Figs.13-16]. As Megapontius gigas.
Female: 13, P2; 14, P3; 15, P4; 16, P5. (ventral side).

Nota: P5 very small, 2-segmented; the proximal segment is imperfectly separated from the 1st segment of the urosome, it bears 1 lateral seta; the distal segment with 2 short outer and 1 fairly long terminal setae.

Espèce Hyalopontius typicus - Planche 4 de figures morphologiquesissued from : G.A. Boxshall in Bull. Br. Mus. nat. Hist. (Zool.), 1979, 35 (3). [p.245, Fig.19].
Female (from NE Atlantic: 44°N, 12°W): A, habitus (dorsal); B, anterior portion of urosome (left lateral side); C, A1; D, A2; E, P5.

Male: F, urosome (ventral); G, caudal ramus; H, Mxp; I, P5; J, P6.

Espèce Hyalopontius typicus - Planche 5 de figures morphologiquesissued from : G.O. Sars in Res. Camp. Scient. Prince Albert Ier Movaco, 1938 (97). [Pl. I, Fig.5].
Female (from 31°-37°N, 19°-28°W): 5, habitus (dorsal).
