Holotype NMNS NSMT-Ac 14686 (Holotype), geounit Sea of Japan [details]
From editor or global species database
Diagnosis Differential diagnosis: The colour is dark brown, nearly black. Body length is 641–859 μm. In centrodorsal notogastral cuticle with dense granulation, lateral parts are covered with larger granules. Prodorsal lamellar keels are converging. Short clavate sensilli are present. Interlamellar and exobothridial setae are absent. Labiogenal articulation is complete. One pair of adanal setae located posteriorly of anal orifice. Remarkable sexual dimorphism is present, females with strongly folded gastronotic integument and considerably shorter epimeral, genital, and aggenital setae. Male spermatopositor conspicuously elongated, female ovipositor very short. Primilateral setae pl on tarsus I are present. Dorsal companion seta d on genu I, II, and III and all tibiae are present. Tarsal distal setae end with a small nodule. Juveniles is unknown. [details]
