Brief Summary

Read full entry
Remarks: This species is easily distinguished from L. washingtonianus of KIKUCHI & OHTA (1995), the other congeneric species occurring at hydrothermal vents, by the absence of a strap-like epipod on the third pereopod and the more slender, elongate third to fifth pereopods. Another different species was described by SAINT LAURENT (1984) under the same name. It differs mainly from the other caridean species associated with hydrothermal vents by the well developed eyes and the carpus of the second pereopod divided in seven articles.
