Species Scottocalanus farrani - Plate 1 of morphological figuresissued from : Mulyadi in The Raffles Bull. Zool., 1998, 46 (2). [p.383, Fig.1].
Male: a, habitus (dorsal); b, forehead (left lateral side); c, last thoracic segment and genital somite; d, rostrum (frontal view); e, P2; f, P3; f, P4; h, P5.
Nota: The male most closely resembles that of S. persecans, but is distinguishable from the latter.

Species Scottocalanus farrani - Plate 3 of morphological figuresissued from : A. Scott in Siboga-Expedition, 1909, XIX a. [Plate XXIV, Figs.1-9].
Female: 1, habitus (dorsal); 2, forehead (lateral); 3, last thoracic and genital segments (left side); 4, rostrum; 5, A1; 6, Mx2 (distal portion); 7, P2; 8, P4; 9, P5.

Species Scottocalanus farrani - Plate 4 of morphological figuresissued from : G.D. Grice in Fish. Bull. Fish and Wildl. Ser., 1962, 61. [p.212, Pl.19, Figs.16-20].
Male (from 00°00', 149°38'W): 16, forehead (lateral); 17, posterior part of thorax and genital segment (lateral, right side); 18, rostrum; 19, P2; 20, P5.

Species Scottocalanus farrani - Plate 5 of morphological figuresissued from : Mulyadi in Published by Res. Center Biol., Indonesia Inst. Sci. Bogor, 2004. [p.26, Fig.11].
Male (from Flores Sea): a, habitus (dorsal view).
Nota: In this drawing, the same figure than 1998, fig.1, the 2nd and 3rd caudal setae are plumose on the proximal part.

Indian (off SW Laccadive Is., 10° N - 10° S in Gopalakrishnan & Balachandran, 1992), Indonesia-Malaysia, Flores Sea, Celebes Sea, China Seas (East China Sea, South China Sea), Pacif. (W equatorial), Pacif. (equatorial)
N: 11
(5) F: 3,5; M: 3,54; (101) M: 3,5; (777) M: 3,54; (1122) M: 3,54; {F: 3,50; M: 3,50-3,54}
Rem.: For Vervoort (1965, p.54) the female of A. Scott's S. farrani is very near to S. helenae, but the lateral margins of the last thoracic somites are of a quite different shape, there is a small difference inthe shape of the crest and P5 are slightly different. The differences in the structure of P5 male are much bigger. The two species are closely allied.
