Etymology. The species is named for the Fisheries Research Vessel Sarda   from which the type material was collected.

Description. Head lateral cephalic lobe broadly triangular, apically rounded; eyes well developed, oval. Antenna 1 accessory flagellum 2–3-articulate. Antenna 2 calceoli not present in male. Epistome and upper lip with weak central slit. Mandible lacinia mobilis absent; molar absent. Maxilla 1 inner plate with 3 apical pappose setae; outer plate with 9 setal-teeth in a 5/4 arrangement, with few or no cusps. Maxilliped palp 1- articulate.

Gnathopod 1 subchelate; carpus shorter than propodus, without posterodistal lobe; propodus posterior margin dentate, with 2 robust setae along posterior margin. Gnathopod 2 carpus longer than propodus. Pereopods 5–7 propodus with anterodistal spur. Pereopod 5 coxa posterior lobe deeper than anterior lobe, long, triangular; basis greatly expanded posteriorly, with posteroventral lobe. Pereopod 6 coxa posterior lobe subequal in length to anterior lobe, short, distally rounded; basis greatly expanded posteriorly, with posteroventral lobe. Pereopod 7 basis greatly expanded posteriorly, posterior margin evenly curved, with posteroventral lobe, posteroventral corner rounded.

Epimeron 3 posterior margin finely serrate, posteroventral corner subquadrate. Urosomite 1 with an anterodorsal depression and a rounded dorsodistal boss. Urosomite 3 without dorsolateral flanges. Uropod 3 rami without robust setae; inner ramus longer than article 1 of outer ramus. Telson   longer than broad, entire, emarginate, without mid-dorsal robust setae, lateral margins curved, uniformly tapering distally, without robust setae on lateral margins, without apical robust setae.

Distribution. South-eastern Australia in 64–100 m depth.
