Bacescu, 1950

Description
Very similar to Pseudocuma longicornis but male antenna 1 has a brush of aesthetascs on the distal segment of the peduncle and the flagellum of antenna 2 does not reach beyond the end of the pereion, while there are only five to seven spines on the endopod of the uropod.

Size
Length up to 3 mm.

Ecology
Littoral.

Depth range
Down to about m.

Distribution in the North Sea
Recorded from the coast of Belgium and from Liverpool Bay in shallow water. It seems possible that this is a neotenous form of the male of Pseudocuma longicornis but further study is required.

World distribution
NW Europe.

[After Jones, 1976]
