- See: carapace region g [Martin, 2005].Paired anterolateral areas of the carapace bounded anteriorly by the antennal region, posteriorly by the branchial region, and mesially by the gastric region [Perez Farfante and Kensley, 1997].Paired anterolateral areas on carapace bounded posteriorly by branchial region, mesially by gastric region, and anteriorly by antennal region [Butler, T.H.].Paired anterolateral areas on the carapace bounded posteriorly by the branchial region, mesially by the gstric region, and anteriorly by the orbital or (in the shrimps) antennal region [Chace and Hobbs, 1969].Paired regions of dorsal carapace between orbits and branchial regions, defined laterally in crabs by anterolateral margin, sometimes bearing hepatic spine(s), and sometimes (prawns and lobsters) with a curved hepatic groove or ridge ventrally [Poore, 2004].Small (paired)subtriangular, anterolateral region, wedged between branchial and gastric regions, and either margin of carapace or margin of orbit in Brachyura [Williams, 1984].The region on the dorsal surface of the carapace bounded by part of the antero lateral margin of the carapace and part of the margin of the orbital, protogastic and epibranchial regions [Ingle, 1983].(Order Decapoda):See: carapace regions g [McLaughlin, 1980].(Order Decapoda):One of two lateral regions of carapace more or less corresponding to underlying hepatic ceca. Adjoining regions include antennal, branchial, cardiac, and pterygostomial regions [Stachowitsch, 1992].
