Resumen: "The coastal planktonic calanoid copepod Pseudodiaptomus cokeri González & Bowman, 1965 was found off Rodadero Bay, northern Colombia. A comparative morphological analysis of Colombian specimens suggests a close affinity with other populations from the Caribbean islands. This is the first record of P. cokeri from Colombia and the third record of the genus from this country. It supports the notion that its distributional range does not overlap with that of P. pelagicus Herrick, 1884 in the Northwestern Tropical Atlantic"
