    Abstract

    This key has been prepared for the use mainly of non-specialists in the group Copepoda, to aid them in the ready identification of the commoner species occurring in marine plankton. In framing the key an attempt ha, been made to avoid excessive technicality on the one hand and too gre?t artificiality on the other. It \vill be seen that the species are treated in a linear order that is not very different from the taxonoinic order. The ~l~orphological characters used for differentiation are, as far as possible, such as could he verified by non-specia!ists and offel less of difficulty in the actual working. The characters are those of the sexually mature individuals only, since the larval and copepodite stages are excluded from the purvlelv of the key.
