Copepodid stages and adults of the shallow- and deep-water species of the Oncaeidae (e.g., Oncaea Philippi, 1843 and Triconia Bottger-Schnack, 1999) are associated with appendicularian houses, in particular discarded ones, on which phyto- and zooplankters still remain and are consumed by the copepods (Alldredge 1972; Ohtsuka and Kubo 1991; Ohtsuka et al.
On the southern Gulf of Mexico, it can represent up to 49 % of appendicularian abundance (Flores-Coto, San Vicente-Anorve, & Sanchez-Ramirez, 2010).

Here we use fluorescence confocal microscopy and BrdU labeling to provide the first quantitative analysis of appendicularian notochord development and growth, including cell numbers and morphologies at different developmental stages.
Here we test the hypothesis that age of a specific developmental stage in the urochordate appendicularian Oikopleura dioica Fol, 1872, can be predicted from the number of endostyle cells and temperature, thus serving as such a reference system.
Such differences resulted from the disparity between copepod and appendicularian abundances.
