  • This entry is discussed in JageSala2015. Notice, however that this ref fits a model without reserve, with the consequence that some symbols have a different meaning. (ref: JageSala2015)
  • 6 nauplier stages, and 6 copepodite stage; nauplier stages 1-2 do not feed (ref: JageSala2015)
  • Lipid content starts to increase at the transition from CII to CIII, suggesting start of allocation to reproduction (ref: JageSala2015)


  • Growth ceases at puberty, but see F3; no acceleration, unlike other copepods in the collection
