A group formed by zoologists from Brazil and England present an identification guide for species of planktonic calanoid copepods (Diaptomidae) from “de la Plata” basin, the second largest in South America and tenth largest in the world.
The guide contains identification keys and species diagnoses for males and females, and is richly supported by scanning electronic micrographs and line drawings of 19 species. It also includes some general remarks on the taxonomy and phylogenetic relationships of these species. The key was adjusted to be useful for these species only, with separate keys for each sex, and is the first for females of South America.
