Brief Summary

Read full entry
Remarks: Alvinocaris dissimilis, A. markensis, A. muricola and A. longirostris are morphologically very similar to one another. These four species share the rostrum reaching at least to the second segment of the antennular peduncle and armed usually with one or more ventral teeth, relatively high postrostral median ridge on the carapace, and the posterior margin of the telson with long plumose setae and two lateral pairs of spines. These characters should be used with caution, as most of them are useful only for adult specimens.
