Carte de distribution de Tortanus (Atortus) andamanensis par zones géographiques
Cette espèce est la dernière prise en compte (16 octobre 2015) dans la base des données sur les copépodes marins pélagiques (largo sensu) des origines jusqu'à cette dernière date pour toutes les mers et océans. Cette ''essai'' de synthèse est en reconnaissance de tous les collègues qui se sont confrontés à ce groupe zoologique, tant des points de vue systématique que biologique. L'idée initiale de ce travail par l'un de nous (C. R.) est dû aux travaux de R. B. Seymour Sewell, Lieutenant-Colonel, IMS (late Director, Zoological Survey of India, Calcutta)
