Chart of 1996
Species Centropages kroyeri - Distribution map 4issued from : J.-P. Ehrhardt in Cah. Oceanogr., 1967 (9). [Fig.16].
Occurrence of Centropages kroyeri collected once (24 September 1963 during the night) at 1 station on 39 stations between the southern Tyrrhenian Sea, Tunisia-Sardinia Strait and Cap Bon-west Sicily .

Black Sea, ? Black River estuary), Iskenderoun Bay, W Egyptian coast, Alexandria), Suez Canal (Lake Timsah, Sharm El-Sheikh, Red Sea, off Socotra, NW Indian, Indonesia-Malaysia (Kurau Riv.), Philippines, Korea-Japan, ? SW Mexico (in C.B. Wilson, 1950, p.187)
N: 105 (S Atlant.: 1; N Atlant.: 10; Medit.: 77; ? Black Sea: 6; Suez Canal: 2, Red Sea: 2; Indo-Malaysia: 3 ?; Pacif.: 1 9)
Lg.:
(46) F: 1,35-1,25; M: 1,2; (353) F: 1,519-1,292; M: 1,406-1,306; (449) F: 1,35-1,25; M: 1,2; (833)* F: 0,866-1,304; M: 0,824-0,95; {F: 1,25-1,52; M: 1,20-1,41}
*(833) les longueurs données (cephalosome + abdomen, not fcaudal rami).
After Beldescu & al. (1956, in The Black Sea), Lg: F = 0,8-1,2; M = 0,8-1,2; weight F = 0,038 mg; M = 0,010 mg.
Rem.: epipelagic.
For Moraitou-Apostolopoulou (1985, p.315) C. kröyeri a dominant copepod in the Levantine Basin, is found in restricted numbers in both the western Mediterranean Sea and the Aegean Sea.
In the Black Sea it is possible that Centropages ponticus, a valid species, replace Centropages kroyeri.
After El-Sherbiny & al. (2011, p.847) this species in the Lake Timsah (Suez Canal) is well represented in summer.
