Abstract: The calanoid genus Tortanus contains 17
known species of predaceous copepods which
inhabit coastal waters of the world, except the
Antarctic, eastern North Atlantic, and Mediterranean.
All except T. vermimlus Shen (1955)
and T. denticulatus Shen & Lee (1963) are
listed in Jones and Park (1968). Two schemes
have been proposed to subdivide the genus Tortanus.
Steuer (1926) divided the eight species
then known into three groups, without giving
names to the groups. Sewell (1932) assigned
the seven Indian Ocean species to two subgenera,
Tortanus and Atortus. Sewell's subgenera
correspond exactly to two of Steuer's
groups, but Sewell made no mention of Steuer's
classification, even though he listed Steuer's
revision in his bibliography (Sewell, 1929).
