The Antarctic represents the final of the world's nonetheless unexplored continents. considering that 1985, Italy has despatched 9 expeditions to this zone, making it essentially the most scientifically energetic international locations within the Antarctic. Italy has equipped an everlasting base there and has all started a scientific selection of information and samples so as to give a contribution to our figuring out of this bizarre and intensely interesting continent. inside this framework, Italy has additionally performed learn in a sub-Antarctic sector of serious medical curiosity, the Straits of Magellan. This zone, with its attribute oceanography and biota, represents a transition element among the faunal assemblages of temperate and antarctic seas. This atlas at the zooplankton is a vital contribution to the research of the faunal assemblages of the area of the Straits and may with a bit of luck be via others. The initiative is a part of an enormous software introduced via the Italian Ministry of Universities and medical and Technological learn to advertise the exploration of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic seas, the purpose of that is to maintain one of many Earth's biggest and so much undisturbed ordinary laboratories.

Spinifrons: H. subspinifrons described by Tanaka (1964a) for specimens from deep waters of Sagami Bay, Japan, and H. spiniJer described by Park (1970) for specimens from the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Our specimens differ from the descriptions given for the above species in several anatomical details. Also, they are bigger in size compared to H. 7mm) and do not bear small processes on either side above the genital aperture characterizing H. sUb-spinifrons females. 36 Systematic Account Distribution H.
Lucens in his fig. 5c (p. 22). 52 Systematic Account Distribution M. lucens is a very abundant oceanic boreal and temperate species, widespread in the North Atlantic (Giesbrecht 1892; Sars 1903; Wilson 1932). It has been found south of New Zealand to within the Antarctic Circle (Farran 1929). It has also been reported off the coasts of Argentina (Ramirez 1970,1971) and Chile (Marin and Antezana 1985; Hirakawa 1989). Mazzocchi and lanora (1991) found this species at Pacific stations in the Straits of Magellan, where it was reported as M.
