Eryon cuvieri Desmarest, 1817


Eryon cuvieri Desmarest, 1817  

( Fig. 9 View FIG )

STUDIED MATERIAL. — Charbonnier & Garassino (2012) listed 16 specimens including the lectotype (Appendix 1).


Three of the specimens figured are in ventral view ( Fig. 9 View FIG C-G), allowing the observation of nicely preserved details such as the mandibles exhibiting sharp triangular teeth of uneven size (specimen MNHN.F.GG2004/8220; Fig. 9D, E View FIG ). Indeed, the preservation is usually excellent: the antennae, antennules and eyestalks of the specimens MNHN.F. A33545 View Materials and GG2004/8218 are clearly visible and they exhibit between eight and ten pereiopods. The dorsally preserved specimen MNHN.F. B13439 View Materials ( Fig.9H View FIG ) is also well-preserved and evidences delicate details on the carapace (branchiocardiac, postcervical and cervical grooves), telson (ponctuations and carinae).The other specimen ( A33501 View Materials ; Fig. 9B View FIG ) present some calcite bundles on the left chela.
