Palp with tiny eighth segment no longer than wide, shorter than 2 more distal segments. Legs very slender, almost glabrous, tarsus only slightly longer than propodus.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Bathyal to abyssal (Ref. 19). 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).
