Rem.: The presence of this species in the eastern Mediterranean is possibly a result of lessepsian migration (across the Suez Canal from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea).
According to Nishida (1985, p.36) the Pacific distribution of this species and A. hamata supports the opinion of Grice (1964) that these two species may be conspecific.
After Ueda & al., 1983 (p.167, Table 2 & p.169: Table 4, as Acartia hamata) at Shijiki Bay (Japan): (1)-Shape and diameter of swarm, (2)-depth (m), (3)- swarming position, (4)-number of samples examined, (5)-Mean % of adults, (6)- Mean % of females among adults.
