Diagnosis

Slender morphology, with a mostly long rostrum (longer than the antennular peduncle) but variable, the antennal spine ventral to the inferior orbital angle, a long antennular peduncle (subequal to carapace length), segments of walking legs slender, a typical dorsal hump over the third abdominal somite, a long sixth abdominal somite (always more than half of carapace length), a small pre-anal carina sometimes bearing an acute spine, a moderate number of spinules on the uropodal diaeresis (<15), fewer, medium to short and terminal setae on the telson and a subtriangular endopod of the first male pleopod with or without an appendix on the subdistal outer margin or even placed at the distal end. An oblique red band on the cephalothorax is very characteristic.
