Diagnosis: The ailerons are rod-like and uniramous
parapodia occur throughout identifying this specimen as belonging to the genus Hemipodia.
and all are same in shape and size.
, 3-segmented; forming chelate apparatus with pointed process of middle segment lying against claw of terminal segment.
More posterior parapodia are uniramous
, with small dorsal and ventral cirri.
First or first few anteriormost setigers generally uniramous
, biramous thereafter with inconspicuous parapodial lobes.
Sex was determined by the presence of biramous pleopods in females and uniramous
pleopods in males (Morgan 1980).

03 mm) bell-shaped with broadly rounded anterior margin between prominent lateral lobes, lamelliform sensilla with sub-marginal origin; labrum extending from anterior frontoclypeal margin into cibarium, rectangular posteriorly; ocelli arranged in a circle, ocularia bordered with hair-like sensilla, temporal spine series extending from near origin of cervical region anteroventrally on a line running below ocularia; antenna uniramous
, length x = 0.
Crab sex was determined as follows: females have a gonopore on the coxa of each third pereopod and elongated biramous pleopods, whereas males have a gonopore on the coxa of each fifth pereopod and short uniramous
Pleomere 6 bearing widely separated uniramous
uropods of structure and shape similar to that of lateral plates.
