Details of uropods, telson and shield. A. Left uropod and left part of telson of a specimen of ?Sculda pennata/spinosa (no. 12) in dorsal view. B. Head shield of a specimen of ?Sculda pennata/spinosa (no. 12). Note the ridges running antero-posteriorly. C. Head shield of a specimen of Sculda sp. (no. 10). The division of the shield into three fields is apparent (see arrows), but the ridges are only weakly expressed. D. Left uropod and left half of the telson of a specimen of Sculda sp. (no. 13). E. Head shield of a specimen of Sculda sp. (no. 14), showing the tripartite-division (arrows). F. Holotype of Sculda pusilla Kunth, 1870 (no. 15). Not many details preserved. G. Uropods and telson of a specimen of Sculda sp. (no. 16). The image used here was taken under normal light, whereas the corresponding image in Figure 2 was taken under green light. H. Part of telson and one uropod of one specimen of Spinosculda ehrlichi Haug, Haug & Waloszek, 2009 (no. 17). Abbreviations: bsp = basipodal spine, rst = rostrum, tl = telson, ur = uropod, ur en = uropodal endopod, ur ex = uropodal exopod.
