Distribution map of Calocalanus vivesei by geographical zones
Medit. (Alboran Sea, Lebanon Basin)
N: 4
(419) F: 0,93; M: 0,82; {F: 0,93; M: 0,82}
Rem.: epipelagic (10-25 m).
Closely related to Calocalanus neptunus but differs from it by the structure P5 (in C. neptunus they are more powerful and end by 2 long spines whereas in C. vivesi by 1 small spine).
This species is dedicated by Shmeleva to Francisco Vives Galmès, who died in Majorca on 2 March 2015 {See Orbituary, Scientia Marina, 2015, 79 (2): 275-278].
