Abdomen long, with ventrodistal bend, bearing 2 short proximal tubercles, 2 long dorsomedian tubercles, and 2 long dorsodistal tubercles, each bearing lateral and distal spines. Chelifore scapes 1 segmented, long, with several setose, short distal tubercles; chelae tiny, vestigial. Oviger segment 4 long, slender; strigilis weak, terminal segment tiny, with 3 broad spines.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Shelf (Ref. 19). Members of the class Pycnogonida are gonochoric and sexually dimorphic. During copulation, male usually suspends itself beneath the female. Fertilization occurs as the eggs leave the female's ovigers. Males brood the egg masses until they hatch. Life cycle: Eggs hatch into protonymphon larva then to adults (Ref. 833).
