stomatopod integumental ornamentation
(Order Stomatopoda):
Armature and ornamentation of carapace, thoracic somites, abdomen, and telson; name types include: Carinae: (a) intermediate. Between sudmedian and lateral carinae on each side of carapace. (b) lateral. Between intermediate and marginal carinae on each side of carapace and abdomen; extending posteriorly from near anterolateral angle nearly to margin on carapace. (c) marginal. Carinae of lateral margins on abdomen; extending along each lateral margin of carapace, often curving upward posteriorly to loop around lateral carinae. (d) median. Middorsal carina, sometimes bifurcate anteriorly on either side of cervical groove. (e) submedian. Slightly lateral of midline and medin carina in abdominal region, not present on carapace. Denticles: (a) intermediate. Row of small projections between intermediate and submedian teeth on lateroterminal margin of telson. (b) lateral small projection(s) at medial base of each lateral tooth on telson. (c) submedian. Small projection(s) just lateral of midline on terminal margin of telson (medial to submedian teeth). Grooves: (a) cervical. Distinct transverse depression or groove in posterior half of carapace. (b) gastric. Longitudinal pair of grooves, extending from base of rostrum to posterior margin of carapace. Teeth: (a) intermediate. Strong spinelike or blunt projection at distolateral angle of telson, between submedian and lateral teeth. (b) lateral. Strong spinelike or blunt projection on lateral margin of telson distally, between intermediate tooth and prelateral lobe. (c) submedian. Strong spinelike or blunt projection just lateral of midline on terminal margin of telson [McLaughlin, 1980].
