The genus Jengalpheops Anker and Dworschak, 2007
The recently established genus Jengalpheops includes only one species.
Jengalpheops rufus Anker and Dworschak, 2007, the type species.
Jengalpheops may be distinguished from other alpheid genera by the following features:
Jengalpheops is presently known only from the western Pacific. It belongs to a clade of “primitive” alpheids and is possibly closely related to Potamalpheops (Anker and Dworschak, 2007), from which it may be separated by the absence of orbital teeth and the non-toothed diaeresis (transverse suture) of the uropodal exopod.
