Pseudamaryllis Andres  

Pseudamaryllis Andres, 1981: 464   .–Barnard & Karaman, 1991: 521.–Lowry & Stoddart, 1993: 98.

Amaryllis   .– Ledoyer, 1986: 717 (in part).

Paravijaya Ren, 1998: 156   , 162.

Diagnosis. Head with rostrum anteriorly rounded or absent; eye reniform. Antenna 1 peduncular article 1 not ball-shaped proximally; peduncular article 2 medium length; callynophore present in female and male. Antenna 2 flagellum about as long as that of antenna 1 in female and male. Mandible palp article 3 with or without proximal A3-seta. Pereopod 4 coxa with anterior and posterior margins subparallel. Uropod 3 rami without plumose setae in male and female; outer ramus 1-articulate.

Type species. Pseudamaryllis nonconstricta Andres, 1981   , by original designation.

Species composition. Pseudamaryllis   contains two species: P. andresi Lowry & Stoddart, 1993   and P. nonconstricta Andres, 1981   .

Remarks. Ren (1998) established the genus Paravijaya   , which he compared to and distinguished from the genera Amaryllis   , Pseudamaryllis   and Vijaya   . Paravijaya   was distinguished from Pseudamaryllis   by: the labrum and epistome being coalesced, peduncular article 1 of antenna 1 being longer than other articles, and inner ramus of uropod 2 with a small notch. Ren was apparently unaware of the publication by Lowry & Stoddart (1993), which established a new species of Pseudamaryllis   and slightly expanded the generic diagnosis. Paravijaya   is a synonym of Pseudamaryllis   and Pa. apiculata Ren, 1998   , is the same species described by Lowry & Stoddart (1993) as Ps. andresi   .

Pseudamaryllis   is the only amaryllidid genus with the combination of a callynophore in the female and robust setae on the propodus of gnathopod 1.

Distribution. Western Indian Ocean, Red Sea and South China Sea; 90–1544 m depth (see Fig. 76).
