The worldwide distribution of Euphausiacea is related to differences in character states found in the genera belonging to this order. An area cladogram is composed. The vicariant events postulated in this study made it possible to distinguish between different “hydroplates” of the “hydrotectonic (cf. Nelson, 1986) system” on the basis of general trends in distribution of these genera.
