Abstract: Plankton samples were taken either superficially or vertically from different depths to the surface off the coast of Brazil (4°57'N and 34°42'S). These plankton samples belong to the collections of the Instituto Oceanográfico, USP. Some were donated by foreign institutions like the Japanese Government (samples from the "Toko Maru" cruise) and The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution ("Atlantis" cruise n. 247 along 36°S lat.). Some were donated to the Instituto by the Brazilian Navy. The others were collected by the Instituto's staff for several purposes (hydrographical, biological and fisheries research).
Note: the author, T.K.S. Björnberg, has updated the taxonomy in July 2008.
