An addition of 45 species, 16 of which are new records. is made to the previously published list of 129 species of calanoid, harpacticoid and cyclopoid Copepoda collected from the Florida Current off Miami. Many of these, captured with the Isaacs-Kidd mid-water trawl, are among the largest species of pelagic copepods known. The first Atlantic record of Megacalanus typicus (A. Scott), previously known only from East Indian waters, is reported. The external morphology of a female stage IV copepodid is compared with that of the stage V copepodid and the adult. Pseuclochirella obesa Sars, a poorly known species, is described and illustrated.
