Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis As with the characters of the family with the following additions. Cuticle relatively thin, translucent, with distinct hexagonal markings. Callynophore of A1 triangular in cross-section, with slightly serrated margins. Coxae relatively small. Maxillae 1 with relatively broad palp, relatively shorter than in Mimonectes. Uropoda; rami with slightly serrated margins; outer margin of peduncle, and sometimes base of outer ramus, of U1, with fringe of minute or longer setae.
Sexual dimorphism. Females, even when immature, have a slightly inflated pereon which seems to become more inflated with maturity, although the extent of the inflation is not known because fully mature females have not been recorded, except for the questionable record of Sphaeromimonectes scinoides (Woltereck 1906).
Males have a relatively slender body, the first antennae are relatively longer, and the second antennae of mature males are longer than the first. Males also seem to have elatively longer and larger pereopods and uropoda than females of similar size (compare figs. 33 & 34). In addition, the propodus of gnathopod 1 is armed with more numerous long setae, the merus and carpus of pereopod 7 is not swollen, and the telson is relatively shorter than in females [details]
