(Ehrenberg)

Differs from Dyctiocoryne profunda in that the 3 arms are more slender, longer, and their orientation defines two larger angles and one smaller one. Euchitonia elegans intergrades smoothly with Euchitonia furcata; end members differ in that distal tips of arms taper in Euchitonia elegans ([t]E. elegans/furcata group?[/t][/im], right panel), while in Euchitonia furcata their terminations are club-shaped and more blunt ([t]E. elegans/furcata group?[/t][/im], left and middle panel, respectively). Length of arms (from center of shell): 150-300 µm.
