Female: I, urosome (left: ventral); right: dorsal). Pore signature schematic by pooled samples (symbols are considerably larger than pores): Filled circle: 100 % presence; open circle: 95-99 % presence; triangle: 50-89 % presence. n = 100 (percentages not differentiated).

Morphological characters of calanus helgolandicus during ontogenese copepodites I to V, Female (F) and male (M).
Nota: Probably as Calanus euxinus because the samples from Sebastopol (Black Sea).
Note the number of thoracic and urosomal segments for distinguish the different copepodids stages.

Distribution map of Calanus euxinus by geographical zones
Species Calanus euxinus - Distribution map 3issued from : A.V. Bogorov in Vest. Zool., 1969, 3. [p.83, Table].
Variations of morphologic characters during ontogenese of Calanus helgolandicus from Sebastopol (Black Sea).
A: Stages; B, Body length; C: Cephalothoracic length; D, maximal length of the cephalosome section; E: Maximal width of the cephalotorax; F: Urosome width; G: A1 length; H: Maximal width of the cephalosome (in % maximal width of the cephalothorax.
% : in % of body length.
Loc:
E Medit. (Marmara Sea, Black Sea, Black River estuary))
N: 29
Lg.:
(131) F: 3,8-3,1; M: 3,4-3,2; (1102) F: 3,209-3,171; M: 3,107-3,073; (1127) F: 3,1-3,6; M: 3,2-3,4; {F: 3,10-3,80; M: 3,20-3,40}.

After Beldescu & al. (1956, in The Black Sea), Lg: F = 3,3-4,7; weight F = 0,952-1,006 mg;
Rem.: After Unal & al. (2003, p.157, In : 3 rd International Zooplankton Production Symposium, 20-23 May, Gijon, Spain) the morphological and genetical differences are very weak between this species and Calanus helgolandicus.
For Isinibilir & al. (2009, p.403) the small-sized males and females in the Marmara Sea are actually not C. helgolandicus but Black Sea C. euxinus after accelerated development in an environment with higher temperature and salinity.
After Svetlichny & al. (2010, p.128) in the Marmara Sea, C. euxinus migrating vertically will experience prinounced salinity changes from 18 to 38.5 psu. Therefore, C. euxinus either adapted to living in a salinity gradient or is confined within a narrow brackish subsurface layer.
After Vucetic (1965) the number of teeth on coxopodite is for the females 24-26 (23-35), and 16-20 for males, and in C. helgolandicus var. ponticus (Yashnov, 1955) (= Calanus euxinus 24-29 (18-37) for females, and 11-21 for males.
