The Flagellophorella complex

This complex includes four genera, of which two, Cryptacanthophorella gen. nov. and Flagellophorella gen. nov., are monotypic. The remaining two genera, Acanthophorella gen. nov. and Pseudoflagellophorella gen. nov., each contain three species. The main characteristic of this complex is the presence of a pair of flagella, pseudoflagella, thorn-like processes or partly covered processes on the anterior side of the anterior gonopods. The genera are with 29 or 31 body segments in adults (including telson).
