Abstract

In 1999 the small corycaeid copepod Ditrichocorycaeus minimus indicus was recorded for the first time in the Adriatic Sea. Both sexes are characterized by almost equal length and width of the anal somite and presence of the medial ventral hooks on the genital somite. Ventral hooks are prominent in male and minute in female. Detailed description of the species is given on the basis of the material from the middle Adriatic Sea and compared to the existing descriptions.
