AbstractThe existence of clinal variation in some morphological characters of Atlantic Salpa fusiformis Cuvier, 1804, is reported. The number of muscle fibres of both aggregate and solitary individuals is subjected to a decrease from higher to lower latitudes. Size and reproduction also seem to vary according to the latitude. The results and their bearing on infraspecific salp taxonomy are provisionally discussed.
