Work on the copepoda parasitizing anoidiens has been relatively extensive in Europe, loss so on the East Coast of the United States and negligible on the West Coast. of this work, a major portion has been concerned with the solitary ascidians, while the colonial or compound forms have been largely neglected. The apparent lack of interest in copepods parasitizing compound be attributed to the manliness of the animals, their associations with both Zooids and the colonial matrix which makes dissection difficult and the chaotic condition of their taxonomy.
