Taxonomic remark In the database of Marine Planktonic Copepods (Banyuls) the two form variants of Oncaea venusta, f. typica and f. venella, which differ mainly in size, are presented as valid species. An intermediate size group of O. venusta has recently been described as a new species, Oncaea frosti Heron, 2002. However, the morphological characterization of O. frosti is uncertain (cf. Böttger-Schnack & Huys, 2004) and the taxonomic status of the intermediate size group of Oncaea venusta is still unresolved (cf. Elvers et al., 2006). [details]
