Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This was assigned to the synonymy of Mycale thaumatochela, but the shape of the smaller chelae depicted by Swartschewsky appears different from Lundbeck's drawing. Possibly, Koltun's record of M. thaumatochela concerns this species and not Lundbeck's. [details]
