Two calanoid species, Arctodiaptomus laticeps (Sars, 1863) and Eurytemora velox (Lilljeborg, 1853), are reported from the Danube River basin in Croatia. Our findings present the first record of A. laticeps and E. velox at the territory of Croatia. Both species were found in the lowland floodplain area during the spring-summer inundation throughout the years. Their occurrence in the waterbodies studied has not overlapped, and different environmental parameters characterized the periods of occurrence of the individual species. The existence of E. velox in this region seems to be permanent, whereas the appearance of A. laticeps is rather confounding.
