Legs long, slender; major segments subequal; tibiae with many very long setae, several shorter dorsal setae; propodus short; soles of tarsus and propodus tomentose, individual setae very tiny; claw long, well curved; auxiliaries lacking (Ref. 2115, p. 67-69).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Depth based on occurrence (Ref. 1797); to be replaced with better reference. Pelagic (Ref. 91956). 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).
