The new species also differs from M. Adinothrix in having fewer epipodial bristles on the 6th limb and larger processes along the list of the caudal process. Metavargula iota has only 8 claws on the furca compared to 9 on M. optilus and M. ampla, and the distal bristle on the 1st joint of the endopodite of the 2nd antenna on M. iota is much longer.

DISTRIBUTION.—This species was collected at only one station, Cook Strait, New Zealand, at a depth of 117 m.”

Metavargula iota ( Norwegian )

provided by wikipedia NO

Metavargula iota er en art av slekten Metavargula som er en av tretten slekter i familien Cypridinidae. Den igjen er en av fem familier innenfor ordenen Myodocopida, under klassen av muslingkreps som er små krepsdyr. Mye av den tidlige forskningen, inklusive beskrivelsen av Myodocopida-gruppen, er gjort av den norske marinbiologen og havforskeren Georg Ossian Sars.

Gruppen Cypridinidae har arter med mykt skall (carapax) på overkroppen (thorax) og lang ytter-gren (i stedet for lang inner-gren) på andre antenne-par.[2] Det særegne for artene er at antennen sitter på et feste med en nebb-liknende utvekst (rostrum).[3] Individene er små.

Taksonomisk plassering av gruppen

Taksonomien til muslingkrepsene er omstridt og inneholder vanskelig systamiserte grupper. Det er generelt omstridt å fin-inndele organismer taksonomisk. Skillene mellom de ulike gruppene av muslingkreps er usikre, og stort sett basert på morfologi snarere enn molekylær analyse.[4] En vanlig oppdeling anerkjenner muslingkreps som en av seks ulike klasser av krepsdyr. En moderne oppdatering av systematikken gis av Martin and Davis[5], som følgende oversikt følger ned til nivået orden, mens lavere nivåer i enkelte tilfeller følger Catalogue of Life:[6] - og detaljene gis etter WoRMS-databasen.[7]
