Copepods of the genus Oncaea are small cyclopoids between 0.2 mm and 1.4 mm long. They are abundant in the epipelagic zone of the tropical oceans and although they are often regarded as free-swimming members of the zooplankton community, the minute structure of the mouthparts (Sars, 1918), the reports of food procurement for some members of the genus (Wickstead, 1962; Heinrich (=Geinrich), 1957; Alldredge, 1972), and for the ecologically related genus Sapphirina (Heron, 1973), indicate that…

Observations on the taxonomic composition and vertical distribution of cyclopoid copepods in the central Red Sea
The taxonomic composition and vertical distribution of cyclopoid copepods, including very small species, in the central Red Sea were analyzed. Samples were taken in a multiple opening and closing net
Observations on the taxonomic composition and vertical distribution of cyclopoid copepods in the central Red Sea
TLDR
The taxonomic composition and vertical distribution of cyclopoid copepods, including very small species, in the central Red Sea were analyzed and the dominance of single species among cyclopoids is less pronounced than that reported for calanoids in the mesopelagic zone of the centralRed Sea.
Two species of the genusoncaea (copepoda, poecilostomatoida, oncaeidae) from the east sea, Korea
Oncaea venusta Philippi, 1843 has been known as having some different size groups, but recent genetic study for cyt b and ITS 1 (Elverset al. 2006) suggests that these size groups can be considered
The similis-Subgroup within Triconia (Copepoda: Cyclopoida: Oncaeidae) from Korean Waters (East China Sea), Including a New Species
TLDR
Two small oncaeid copepods were collected in June 2009 using a conical net of a fine mesh size from off the southern coast of Cheju I., Korea (Northwest Pacific) which is affected by the Tsushima Warm Current, and one species is newly recorded from Korean waters, and the other is new to science.
Five Oncaea species (Copepoda, Poecilostomatoida, Oncaeidae) from the Korean waters, with notes on the spatio-temporal distribution of Korean oncaeid species
TLDR
Five Oncaea species were recorded on the basis of specimens collected using three type nets from the South Sea and the East Sea of Korea, and the venusta-group of four species has a dorsoposterior projection on the second pedigerous somite, while the latter do not bear any dorsal projections on the somite.
Polymorphism and pore signature patterns in the copepod genus Oncaea (Cyclopoida)

TLDR
Species of the cyclopoid copepod genus Oncaea are described, and specimens of two closely related and morphologically similar species, O. ornata and O. englishi Heron, are compared and differences in the pore signatures of O. conifera confirm their status as separate species.
The depth distributions and community organization of the planktonic cyclopoids (Crustacea: Copepoda) of the Cape Verde Islands Region
In November 1969 on ‘Discovery’ Cruise 30 a day and a night series of hauls were taken with the RMT 1 + 8 net system (Baker, Clarke & Harris, 1973) in the region of the Cape Verde Islands. The
Midwater zooplankton communities on pelagic detritus (giant larvacean houses) in Monterey Bay, California
TLDR
The results suggest that midwater detritus contains a unique invertebrate community that has been largely undetected, mostly due to sampling difficulties, and also provides benthiclike habitats for midwater zooplankton and serve as feeding centers.
Oncaea frosti, a new species (Copepoda: Poecilostomatoida) from the Liberian coast and the Gulf of Mexico
A new species, Oncaea frosti, is described and compared to O. venusta Philippi and O. venella Farran. The three species are closely related and difficult to distinguish, except for the differences in
Size polymorphism in Oncaea venusta Philippi, 1843 and the validity of O. frosti Heron, 2002: a commentary
TLDR
Comparative analysis of published and newly collected length data of O. venusta variants worldwide demonstrates that O. frosti cannot be unequivocally delineated in the Indo-West Pacific.

PRINCIPAL COMPONENT ANALYSIS OF VARIATION IN FORM WITHIN ONCAEA CONIFERA GIESBRECHT, 1891, A SPECIES OF COPEPOD (CRUSTACEA)
TLDR
The trends in variability of "important" measurements indicate a complex pattern of between-group variability, thus suggesting that the observed variability is not under the control of a simple polymorphism.
