Eine ungewöhnliche Phyllosomalarve eines scyllariden Hummers, welche im Plankton der "Straits of Florida" gefunden worden ist, wird beschrieben und abgebildet. Die 10,8 mm lange Larve ist insofern einmalig, als sie einen gutentwickelten 5. Pereiopoden besitzt mit einem setosen Exopoden und ein breitbasiges Abdomen. Die letztgenannte strukturelle Eigenartigkeit ist nur von Phyllosoma-larven des Genus Scyllarus bekannt. Die gegenwärtigen Informationen erlauben noch nicht einmal eine provisorische Identifikation. Es besteht jedoch die Möglichkeit, daß die Larve zu Scyllarus faxoni gehört.
