Krsinic, 2003 (p.940, figs.F,M); Vives & Shmeleva, 2007 (p.675, figs.F,M, Rem.)
Espèce Mesaiokeras hurei - Planche 1 de figures morphologiquesissued from : F. Krsinic in J. Plankton Res., 2003, 25 (8). [p.941, Fig.1].
Female (from 42°46'02''N, 17°22'02'' E): A-B, habitus (dorsal and lateral, respectively); C, genital double-somite (ventral); D, urosome (lateral); E, A1; F, position of P56; G, forehead (ventral).

Nota: Rostral area rounded without filament. Cephalosome and pedigerous somite 1 fused, 4th and 5th fused, asymmetrical in dorsal view, posterior right margin of 5th pedigerous somite longer than left, covering 1/2 of genital double-somite. Urosome of 4 free somites. Proportional lengths of urosomites and caudal rami 39 : 14 : 16 : 11 : 20 = 100. Ratio of length of prosome to length of urosome (with caudal rami) 3 : 1. Genital area located medioventrally and symmetrical; the opercula are fused, the genital apertures and seminal receptacles are paired; ventro-distal margin of genital double-somite armed with 4 longer processes; some median long, smaller spinules and a tuft of spinumes on the left side. A1 symmetrical, 21-segmented, reaching almost to end of prosome

Female: A, urosome (dorsal); B, urosome with attached spermatophore (lateral, left side).

Nota: Posterior margins of urosomites 3-4 fringed with very fine spines. Caudal rami asymmetrical, longer than wide, right ramus slightly longer than left.

Mx2 : praecoxa with 2 endites, each with 3 setae ; 2 coxal endites each with 2 longer spinulose and 1 shorter seta ; allobasis armed with 4 setae ; endopodal segments with 5 spinulose setae. Mxp : coxa longer than basis ; endopod 6-segmented.
