Rem.: The species belongs to sub-group centrura from Acartia (Odontacartia).
Among the centrura species, the female of A/ (O.) edentata is unique in lacking paired posterior dorsolateral processes on the genital double-somite unlike those of the closely related A. (O.) pacifica from Japan and Korea, and O. ohtsukai according to Ueda & Bucklin (2006).
For Srinui & al. (2019, p.84) in the tropical zone, A. (O.) edentata collected in the Philippines during the rainy season (August), when water temperature and salinity were 30.2 °C and 33.2 per 1000, respectively, in contrast A. (Acanthacartia) tsuensis represents the dominant species in brackish pond water from Panay Island §central Philippines) during the dry season (November-April), with salinity ranging from 14.0 to 40.0. The authors conclude that three species of Acartia (A. (O.) ohtsukai, A/ (O.) pacifica, A. (O.) edentata, and probably other Acartia species appear to occupy water bodies differing in temperature and salinity of the tropical and subtropical zone of the Pacific and Indian oceans.
