Espèce Bathycalanus unicornis - Planche 1 de figures morphologiquesissued from : T.K.S. Björnberg in Antarctic Res. Ser., 1968, 11. [p.75, Figs; 1 A, B; 2, 3, 4].
Female (from SW Valdivia, Chile): 1A, forehead (lateral); 1B, idem (dorsal); 2, urosome (lateral right side); 3, habitus (dorsal); 4, A1.

Nota: Rostrum formed by 2 sausage-shaped protuberances Presence of a conspicuous pointed horn on the forehead, below the horn, 2 minute setae are present. 5 thoracic segments, last thoracic segment laterally rounded. Urosome 4-segmented. Ratio of urosome to cephalothorax 1 : 2.5. Proportional lengths of the body segments to the caudal rami 324 : 81 : 64 : 54 : 43 : 54 : 64 : 43 : 27 : 16 : 43 = 1000. A1 25-segmented.

Remark: The point of the horn is visibly broken off in both specimens examined; it may be much longer than represented in the figure.
