Comprehensive Description

Distinguished by the combination of long first antennae with aesthestascs, the absence of oral spines, mandibles lacking lateral spines, and pereopod VII with a pear-shaped basis, and subchelate propodus and dactylus. This species resembles C. latipes in the length of the first antennae, which have aesthestascs, and the shape of the basis of pereopod VII. Differs mainly in lacking an arched row of oral spines, a character that is only shard with C. fabricii. The shape of the head and eyes is also more like other congeners than C. latipes.
