Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Giesbrecht (1902) erroneously identified an oncaeid copepod of the notopus-type from the Antarctic as "notopus Giesbrecht 1891" (which was the only species of the group described at that time). Later on, Heron (1977) worked on the notopus-type oncaeids in the Antarctic and described several new species within this group. One of these was described as Oncaea prolata, which she synonymized with Giesbrecht´s 1902 species.

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Oncaea prolata belongs to the notopus-group within the Oncaeidae as defined by Böttger-Schnack & Huys (1998, their species group 7). Species of this group are characterized by a long, free exopod segment on Leg 5 bearing two terminal setae. For further details see Böttger-Schnack (2011). [details]
