Fixed cheliceral finger style-like or needle-like, straight, curved, or undulate but not S-shaped or sigmoid; mesoventral groove present; dorsal flagellum complex setae striate, ventral setae striate or plumose
NOTE: In the present study only stigmas with state 2 or 3 are called plumose
In intersex male and immature female crayfish, each endopod and exopod had two distinct rows of delicate plumose
Exopod three-segmented; all exopodal segments with outer spinules as depicted; EXP1 and EXP2 without inner armature; EXP3 with two outer pinnate spines, two distal setae with outer spinules and inner setules, and one inner plumose
Ribs branch on the marginal crenulations and ramifications (second-order marginal crenulations) forming fine plumose
Protopod with 1 outer and 1 inner plumose
setae, 1 proximolateral setulose papilla, and 1 mid-lateral pore.
These flies from Subfamily Muscinae Latreille which characterized by plumose
Most of the dorsal setae plumose
, pilose or serrate M.
australis can be recognized by ventro-medial spurs in male palpal segments, and the copious, plumose
, pale white setae on the female dorsum.
CHARACTER TAXA OF THE ASSOCIATION: Apoglossum ruscifolium, Delesseria sanguinea, Halurus equisetifolius, Heterosiphonia plumosa, Phyllophora crispa, Pleonosporium borreri, Plumaria plumose
The antennules have aesthetascs and simple plumose
and pappose setae; the antennae have simple, plumose
and pappose setae.
Genital double-somite fused dorsally and ventrally, with lateral rib indicating former division (Figure 1A, B); ventral surface plain, bearing P6, the latter represented by 1 outer short plumose
seta and 1 inner long slender element (Figure 1B).
