Sam Bennet, P (1974) Pumiliopsis spathepedes sp. Nov., a Cyclopoid Copepod parasitic on the eye of Sardinella sirm. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 16 (1). pp. 156-160.
The female of a new species of copepod parasite, Pumiliopsis spathepedes is described from the eye of the sardine, Sardinelia sirm from Tuticorin, South-east Coast of India. It has been compared with the only other known species in this genus, namely P. sardinellae. The species can easily be distinguished from all the other bomolochids hitherto known by the enormously developed fifth leg.
