Adult specimens of Acartia bifilosa have been examined under SEM and evidence of the presence of rostral filaments in this species is confirmed. The suggestion of Shim & Choi (1996) to change its taxonomic position from the subgenus Acanthacartia to the subgenus Acartiura is therefore rejected. This report clearly shows that A. bifilosa should remain in its current taxonomic position, although further taxonomic/genetic studies on this species are necessary.

Des specimens adultes d' Acartia bifilosa ont ete examines sous MEB et la presence de filaments rostraux chez cette espece est confirmee. La suggestion de Shim & Choi (1996) de deplacer sa position taxonomique du sous-genre Acanthacartia au sous-genre Acartiura est de ce fait rejetee. Ces observations montrent clairement qu' A. bifilosa devrait conserver sa position taxonomique courante, bien que des etudes taxonomiques/genetiques complementaires sur cette espece soient necessaires.
