- Eumunida annulosa Guerao, Guillermo, 2006, Zootaxa 1227: 14-18.
Size: TL 2.9–3.1 mm, CL 1.1–1.2 mm, CLR 1.7–1.8 mm.
Carapace (Figs. 12 A, B). Rostrum well developed, extending beyond of scaphocerite spine and shorter than CL; posterolateral margins rounded, without spines and denticles or teeth; without setae; eyes sessile, EL less than 1 / 2 of CL. Antennule (Fig. 13 A). Unirramous, endopod absent, with 6 terminal aesthetascs and 1 long subterminal plumose seta. Antenna (Fig. 13 B). Biramous; protopod with 1 spinose process covered with spines, slightly longer than endopod; endopod unsegmented, fused to protopod, with 2 long terminal plumose setae unequal in length; exopod (scaphocerite) ending in robust process at distal margin, inner margin with 910 plumose setae and 1 simple seta. Mandible (Fig. 14 A–C). Left and right mandibles developed and asymmetrically dentate, with 1 and 2 strong incisor processes respectively, and few small processes; in E. capillata inner processes shorter than in E. annulosa (see Fig. 14 B and C); molar processes strongly spinose; palp absent. Maxillule (Fig. 15 A). Coxal endite with 7 setae (5 plumose and 2 simple setae); basal endite with 4 setae (2 strong prominent cuspidate setae with 37 denticles and 2 plumodenticulate setae); endopod 3 segmented with 2 small simple setae on proximal segment, 1 seta on second segment and 3 setae on distal segment. Maxilla (Fig. 15 B). Coxal endite bilobed with 8 + 4 plumose setae; basial endite bilobed with 5 + 4 plumodenticulate setae; endopod unsegmented, bilobed, with 3 (1 minute and 2 long)+ 6 (2 + 4) setae; exopod (scaphognathite) lobe developed anteriorly and with 5 marginal plumose setae, without long posterior process.
Second maxilliped (Fig. 16 B). Coxa without setae; basis with 3 sparsely plumose setae (1,2) on ventral margin; endopod 4 segmented with 2,2, 2 (1 strong spine with spinules + 1) setae, 5 (1 subterminal + 4 terminal) setae, mat of long microtrichiae on segment 23; exopod 2 segmented with 4 long terminal plumose setae. Third maxilliped (Fig. 17 A). Small unsegmented bud. Pereiopods. Absent
Abdomen (Figs 12 A, B). Five somites plus telson; segments 3–5 with posterolateral processes; segments 2–5 each with pair of posterodorsal setae; without denticles or teeth on posterior margin; pleopods absent. Telson (Figs 12 B, 17 B). Trigonal in dorsal view, posterior margin slightly convex, median gap slightly notched, and with nonarticulated spine (shorter than plumose setae), 1 short plumose seta (anomuran hair), shorter than spine, and 5 long plumose setae with spinules on each side.
