Poecilostome Copepods (Cyclopoida, Lichomolgidae) from the Alcyonacean Lobophytum Crassum in the Moluccas
Abstract:Three lichomolgid copepods are associated with the soft coral Lobophytum crassum in the Moluccas. Anisomolgus limbatus new species is characterized by the lamelliform fringe on the second segment of the second antenna of the male. Panjakus auriculatus new species is notable in possessing earlike epimera on the segment of leg 4 in the female. Paramolgus inconstans new species may be recognized by the elongate caudal ramus and the shape of the genital segment in the female. Anisomolgus insolens, a species already known from Madagascar, occurs also on this soft coral.
