On the other hand, the vessel form itself is not simplified, with sharply defined carination
, ledged shoulder, extended neck and out-turned rim.
Nevertheless, we consider that the combination of the shape and carination
of the head, the wing venation, the disproportionate length of the rostrum and legs (very noticeable in brachypterous individuals), the genital characters and the unique longitudinal face coloration pattern, are remarkable enough to erect a new genus.
Apistobuthus differs from these genera in several presumably autapomorphic characters, including the modified form and carination
of metasoma II-III, highly elongated pedipalps, higher range of pectinal tooth counts, and elevated anterior ocular region of the carapace.
Type 3 (hereafter, TT 3) "is a carinated type with a straight upper body giving rise to a slight carination
on the belly" (Fig.
Nine sherds are attributed to jars, with outcurving necks (no corner points on the neck), four rims, one neck, three necks with carination
and one carination
In Zabius, carination
is strong, and nine carinae can clearly be identified (Figs.
The angular kylix is easily distinguished from the other two types by its distinctive carination
Thus, with the complete disappearance of the Lapita design system, there would be major and parallel changes in vessel forms, presumably including loss of carination
and jars with everted rims.
