Member of the Nymphon australe group but with a more slender trunk, lateral processes more separated than usual, and with very few long or short setae. Ocular tubercle a low blind bump. Chelifores slender with few short setae. Chelae fingers very slender, with 40 - 48 closely spaced teeth on each finger. Palp distal segments longer than proximal segments.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

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).
