English term or phrase: setose spine
"telson with threee setose spines on each furca" Sentence describing crustacean morphology
María del Carmen Marchesi
Spanish translation:espina setosa
Explanation:
espina setosa (viene de seto)

Seta (plural Setae). A cuticular process that is clearly articulated with the basal cuticle. This structure comes in many forms. There is a tendency in the literature for some authors to call heavily sclerotized setae "spines", even though they have smaller counterparts of the same form named "setae" by the same authors. "Spinose seta" or "spine-like seta" is more accurate.
