Distribution map of Pseudodiaptomus lobipes by geographical zones
India (Calcutta)
N: 3
() F: 0,35 *; M: 0,95; (1190) F: 1,29-1,33; M: 0,95-0,98; {F: 1,29-1,33; M: 0,95-0,98}
* Measurement for the female given by Gurney probably incorrect (possibly 1.35 mm).
Rem.: freshwater, estuary.
Incomplete data.
In Lobus species group (forbesi subgroup) after Walter & al. 2006, p.203.
Walter (1994, p.124) notes the confusion about the identity of P. lobipes and P. binghami discussed by Reddy & Radhakrishna (1982). The original illustrations of P. lobipes lack many details.
