Conflicting systems of classifying the Calanidae (Brodsky, 1972; Bradford and Jillett, 1974) are analysed and a preferred system recommended. Brodsky’s system, based on characters with assumed adaptive and functional significance is rejected as is his claim to have produced a phylogenetic scheme. Bradford and Jillett’s system, based on a variety of characters, results in a coherent classification which aims to be neutral concerning phylogenetic relationships among genera. Species of Calanoides, Calanus, Nannocalanus, and Neocalanus are surveyed and the need for further taxonomic work is assessed.
