For each lobster image, both the red/blue (R/B) ratio and intensity for the endopodite and abdominal segment were analyzed.
brucei: exopodite of A2 2-segmented with 4 setae, mandibular palp 1-segmented with 4 setae, the first segment of endopodite P2 with setae on inner side, abdominal somites with continuous row of spines edged on dorsal and discontinuous (of female) in the medial row of some longer spines on ventral side.
bourdonis in that the frontal lamina of its head is not demarcated, its body is more rounded, it has dorsally visible coxal plates on more pereomeres, its pleopodal endopodites are larger than its exopodites, and its uropods touch each other medially.
The pleopods are similar to those of the type, their exopodites extending considerably beyond the margins of the pleomeres, the subcircular endopodites not covering the central region of the dorsal surface of the pleon.
furcosus would correspond to the print of the Notostraca anterior zone joined together with the no 5 and 6 endites, possibly more no 3, of the thoracopod endopodite no 1.

Tuma (1967) reported that small Penaeus merguiensis De Man males had a longitudinally constricted petasma on their pleonic endopodites; when mature, the end of endopodites had joined to form the petasma.
The endopodites of the first walking legs are functionally innervated at hatching, because light touches with a fine probe to the hairs at the tip of the endopodite evoked reflex activity in muscle fibers of the merus in all three larval stages [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1B OMITTED].
