Taxonomy Perkins (1984) moved most Hypsicomus species to Notaulax and revised Notaulax to contain species with abdominal paleate setae and elongate collar segment (setiger 1) fascicles. Fitzhugh (1989) states that “Notaulax resembles Hypsicomus and Anamobaea in the occurrence of simple radiolar eyes and abdominal paleate setae. The genus is distinctive in the arrangement of collar setae, presence of superior thoracic spinelike notosetae, and the long branchial base flanges." [details]
