Abstract :

This site, unique for marine planktonic copepods, and created by the Laboratoire Arago (Observatoire Océanologique de Banyuls sur Mer), is the fruit of more than 30 years of research coordinated by Claude Razouls on copepods and multiple collaborations at the international level.

It presents a complete interactive database of all described marine planktonic copepods, including :

  • Taxonomic classification with references
  • Illustrated and referenced species database
  • A geographic distribution in the world's oceans and seas, with division in zones and subzones

synthesis covers the whole of the Oceans and the seas of the sphere

A complete bibliography including taxonomic and ecological aspects


The database was compiled from a bibliographic search of 8403 relevant scientific publications, taking into account the actual state of synonymy.


Species Hemirhabdus grimaldii - Plate of morphological figures It comprises 336 genera, and 2580 studied species with geographic distribution.

The species cards are progressively enriched with elements such as figure plates, maps, graphs or charts, favouring the rare documents.

Currently, 16545 elements have been included, see the example figure opposite.
