Caligus planktonis Pillai, 1979, a species of sea louse reported free in the plankton off India, was found parasitic on a largescale mullet, Liza macrolepis (Smith, 1846), caught in the Strait of Taiwan. The copepod is characteristic in having (1) the genital complex longer than the cephalothoracic shield; (2) a postmaxillary process in the oral region; (3) the inner coxal seta of leg 2 born on an oblong, spinulose lobe; and (4) the 1-segmented exopod on leg 4 with an armature formula of I,III. A brief review is given on the species of Caligus reported free in the plankton. Caligus planktonis Pillai, 1979, une espèce de copépode parasite trouvé libre dans le plancton au large de l'Inde, a été trouvé parasitant un mulet à grandes écailles, Liza macrolepis (Smith, 1846), capturé dans le Détroit de Taiwan. Le copépode est caractéristique par (1) le complexe génital plus long que le céphalothorax; (2) un processus postmaxillaire dans la région orale; (3) la soie coxale interne de P2 portée par un lobe allongé et orné de spinules; et (4) l'exopodite uni-segmenté de P4 avec une formule de I,III. Une courte revue des espèces de Caligus observées libres dans le plancton est donnée.
