In the map above, light blue circles indicate where this taxa has been observed in COPEPOD or OBIS.
Red stars indicate locations where genus-level or species-level barcoding samples exist in GenBank or BOLD.




The table below shows the values plotted in the bargraph above.   Ocean columns indicate taxa has been observed in that ocean.
