This mictacean is a small, blind, unpigmented crustacean. The first thoracic segment is fused with the head, while the remaining seven are free, and there is a down-curved rostrum between the eyestalks, which lack visual elements (2).
Coastal bodies of standing waters that have no surface connections to the ocean but display both tidal fluctuations and salinity ranges characteristic of fresh and brackish waters, indicating the presence of subsurface connections to the watertable and ocean.
Central, forward-projecting and occasionally long spine between the eyes of crustaceans.
Part of the body located near the head in animals.
