Due to their position, curvature, and small size, the serrulate type 3 setae cannot be guard setae.

Following this line of reasoning, the submarginal serrulate setae on the inner surface of the maxillules of P.
Leaves alternate; petiolate; blades ovate, elliptic to linear-elliptic, pinnately to three-veined, margin entire, serrulate to strongly dentate-spinose, subglabrous to glabrous above, densely tomentose beneath.
LEAF DESCRIPTION: SIMPLE, 1/2" long and 1/4" wide, elliptic or oval shape, crenate to serrulate margins, ALTERNATE arrangement.
Shrimp with an occluded snapper claw do not differ significantly from intact animals in this behavior, indicating that the presence of mechanoreceptors (long serrulate setae, simple short setae, and tubercles) or chemoreceptors on the snapper claw is not essential in this process.
Leaves alternate; short-petiolate; blades oblong, cuneate to suborbicular, pinnately veined, margin serrulate to spinulose, pubescent.
LEAF DESCRIPTION: SIMPLE, 2" to 4" long and one-third as wide, oblong-lanceolate to narrow elliptic shape with serrulate margins.
Serrulate setae are located distally on the flanks, with one larger one (120 [[micro]meter]) on the lateral flank and one smaller one (80 [[micro]meter]) on the medial flank; other serrulates, including the cupped serrulate setae, are found along the dorsal edge of the segment bordering the distal intersegmental joint.
Leaves alternate; sessile to subsessile, sometimes pseudopetiolate or clasping; blades usually ovate, margin entire to serrulate, pubescent in both surfaces.
LEAF DESCRIPTION: SIMPLE, 1/2" to 3/4" long and half as wide, oval or elliptic shape with crenate or serrulate margins.
