|Title:||Distribution of Pleuromamma spp (Copepoda-Calanoida) in the northern Arabian Sea|
|Authors:||Goswami, S C|
|Abstract:||Distribution of common marine copepods of genus Pleuromamma Giesbrecht was studied. Two species, Pleuromamma indica Wolfenden and P. gracilis (Claus) were present in surface and vertical samples (0-500 m). The former was dominant (98.17%) and P. gracilis evinced restricted distribution with northern limit till lat. 18-degrees-N. Copepodite stages (CIV and C V) of both species were distributed mostly in the euphotic zone. The adults occurred at deeper depths. The males were recorded at shallower depths compared to the females.|
