Remark This taxon keys out to Notorchestia in the talitroid interactive key, but not so well in the key of Serejo & Lowry (2008). It differs from Notorchestia as follows: left lacinia mobilis with 5 teeth; pleopods 1-2 well developed, pleopod 3 reduced; presence of a large distolateral robust seta on peduncle of uropod 1; telson broader than long, apically cleft.  [details]
