Media notes
This specimen was reviewed by Schweigert (2001) and upheld as Holotype. Schweigert also refigured the original figure. Schweigert (2001:5) "shows all diagnostic features including the pereiopods 1-5 and the 3rd maxillipd. Schlotheim (1822) erroneously interpreted teh 3rd maxilliped as a pereiopod, so that his figure only shows 5 pairs of appendages besides the antennae and antennules. In reality the 3rd pereiopod of the holotype is hidden in part by the 2nd one."
