Female: a, forehead (left side); b, urosome (left side); c-d, genital somite (left and right sides, respectively); e, outer lobe of Mx1; f, P1 (anterior); g, P2 (anterior).
Nota: Similar in habitus to P. euryrhina
but different form it.
Laterally, anterior margin of rostrum straight up to suprafrontal sensilla, posterior margin slightly bulging close to proximal end.
Genital somite relatively short with relatively high prominence, with a depth-length ratio 100:118. Dorsal hump of genital somite located just posterior to middle. A small ridge on anterior margin of genital prominence. Genital flange relatively large, its ventral margin nearly straight or slightly emarginate and its posterior lobe large. measured along posterior margin, genital flange as high as rest of prominence. Posterior edge of genital field produced into a relatively small conical process. Posterior margin of genital prominence sloping about 60° with respect to long body axis and smoothly curving to posterior ventral wall of somite, which is about 3 times length of sloping posterior margin of prominence.
Cephalosomal appendages similar to those of P. euryrhina
, but outer lobe of Mx1 with 9 setae (as in P. malayensis
Swimming legs also similar to those of P. euryrhina
except that outer spine of 1st exopodal segment of P1 better developed.
