Morphological description on some marine pelagic Calanoida, viz. Centropages furcatus and Eucalanus monachus of the families Centropagidae and Eucalanidae, respectively, and Poecilostomatoida, viz. Oncaea venusta, of the family Oncaeida, was made. Taxonomic characters for identification of copepod species were based on the quantitative and qualitative characters. Differences between female and male were based on the antennules, morphology and structure of the fifth legs and the number of segments of the urosome. Female and male were described for each species. The detailed description together with the drawings and measurements are presented.
