Four large spines on the anterior border of the carapace — two close together at the base of the rostrum, one at either orbital angle. Lateral borders of dorsum of carapace well defined, spinulate; the ridge on the side-wall of the carapace that defines the branchial regions anteriorly is also spinulate. A row of spines on the hepatic region, the largest of which is on the lateral border of the carapace and has a spine dorsad of it. Gastric...

Front narrow, forming a rostrum, which is either entire or bifid at tip and has a spine, often of large size, on either side of its base. The orbits are quite incomplete and do not even conceal the eyestalks, and the eyes, which project far outside them, are retractile against the sides...

It differs from that species in the following particulars : — The carapace is more granular, and its lobules are capped by blunt conical spinules, not smooth tubercles ; and its posterior border is finely and irregularly beaded, not dentate. The front is deeply cut into 3 spines...
Page 128 - ... a few articulating spinules at the far end of the posterior border of the propodite, and a comb of articulating spines along the posterior border of the dactylus, the last joint being but half the length of the last but one.
