Paraeuchaeta barbara, from Russ Hopcroft.

Belongs within: Copepoda.

The Euchaetidae are a group of bathypelagic copepods characterised by a prominent supralabrum bearing a rake formed from long stiff hairs.

Characters (from Park 1995): Supralabrum anterior to labrum, highly prominent with rows of long stiff hairs forming a ‘rake’; antennule with segments 8 and 9 fused, extremely long seta on each of segments 3, 7, 9, 14, 18, 21, 24; second exopodal segment of male left P5 extending distally into serrated lamella and with a digitiform process; appendicular caudal setae highly developed, straight, smoothly curved, or geniculated, usually longer than marginal caudal setae.
