(Baird, 1860)

Length female 3.3-3.65mm, male 3.1-3.3mm. Widespread along the west coast of Norway from the Lofoten Islands, and extending into the Skagerrak. Appears to be benthic in habit. The only depth information suggests that it lives at 100-200m.

This is one of the fifteen species within the Cypridinidae which are included in the key for completeness sake.
