The nauplii of the three species are also different:
These are a nauplii of Oithona davisae. They are usually pointy towards the end and have two spines in the posterior part that are almost touching by the end.
Paracartia grani nauplii are more “rectangular-looking” and the spines are open towards the sides, never touching by the end.
