Original description Originally described as: Leuckartia (?) scopularis, n. sp. (PI. XIV. figs. 1-5).
This species I know only from two or three imperfect specimens which were found amongst surface animals taken between Japan and Honolulu. The peculiar brush-like cushion of hairs attached to the inner side of the bases of the fifth pair of feet of the male, afford what appears to be a sufficient specific character (figs. 3, 4), and though the foot of the left side was imperfect in the only male specimen, that of the right side certainly does not agree with Leuckartia Jlavicornis. The anterior antennae are twenty-five-jointed, and that of the left side is simply geniculated (fig. 2) ; the caudal stylets (fig. 5) long and unequal, the tail setse shorter than the abdomen, and nearly equal, except that one on each side is about half as long again as the rest. [details]
