Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Until Appadoo & Myers (2004) this taxon has been referred to the genus Ampithoe, but it confounds the generic diagnoses. Apparently it has no accessory flagellum (Appadoo & Myers, 2004), a character of Ampithoe, but it has a well developed distoventral spine on the peduncle of uropod 1, a character of Cymadusa. Gnathopod 1 is similar in size to gnathopod 2, also a Cymadusa character. The material of C. cavimana from the Great Barrier Reef has a minute 1-articulate accessory flagellum. [details]
