Etymology

Etymology. Named in a memory of Russian carcinologist Andrey K. Klitin. Ecology. A. klitinii was found at the depth of 20 m on sand and gravel bottoms in the south western shelf of Sakhalin and in channel of marine lagoon lake Ptichje (south eastern Sakhalin). Females with oostegites and eggs in marsupium were detected in all localities in May.

Distribution

Distribution. Tatar Strait of Japan Sea near the south west coast of Sakhalin island; Okhotsk Sea, south east coast of Sakhalin Island (Fig. 2).

Discussion

Remarks. According to the formula of dorsal carination Abludomelita klitinii sp. nov. is closely resembles to A. denticulata (Nagata, 1965), A. breviarticulata (Ren, 2012), A. huanghaiensis (Ren, 2012) and A. okhotensis sp. nov.A. klitinii differs from A. denticulata by the dorsal carination of pleon segment 3: A. klitinii have 6–7 subequal teeth along posterior margin; A. denticulata bear 5 teeth, the central of these is largest. Accessory flagellum of antenna 1 of A. klitinii is 4–5-articulate; in A. denticulate accessory flagellum is 1-articulate. A. klitinii differs from A. breviarticulata by the structure of pereopod 2 of male and female: in A. klitinii carpus of pereopod 2 in male with broad posterior lobe, palm oblique, rounded, with slight protuberances, palmar corner with small denticle; propodus of female is not inflated, palm slightly oblique, without teeth. In A. breviarticulata carpus of pereopod 2 in male with narrow posterior lobe, palm oblique, with few protuberances, palmar corner with large acute tooth; propodus of female is inflated, palm oblique, with numerous teeth.

Description

A. klitinii differs from A. huanghaiensis by the structure of pereopod 1 of male and pereopod 2 of female, by the shape of epimeral plate 3 and by the shape of basis of pereopod 7: in A. klitinii propodus of pereopod 1 in male suboval, dactylus as long as palm, strongly curved near the base; propodus of pereopod 2 of female short, palm slightly oblique; posterior margin of epimeral plate 3 without distinct serration; posterior margin of basis of peropod 7 is rounded. In A. huanghaiensis palmar margin of pereopod 1 (gnathopod 1) of male very oblique, concave, longer than the posterior margin of propodus; palmar margin of pereopod 2 (gnathopod 2) of female very oblique, as long as the posterior margin; posterior margin of epimeral plate 3 with numerous teeth; posterior margin of basis of peropod 7 straight. A. klitinii differs from A. okhotensis by the dorsal carination of pleon segments 1 and 2: in A. klitinii the dorsal row of teeth include 5 teeth, the central is largest; in A. okhotensis the dorsal row consist of 6–7 teeth, the central tooth is small.
