Mate-finding behaviour by Calanus marshallae Frost, 1974, was observed and video recorded in a 1 m diameter kreisel. Newly moulted females signal to males by depositing vertical pheromone trails many tens of centimetres long. Males search for trails along primarily horizontal trajectories. The orthogonality of signal trace and search trail trajectory maximizes the chance of intersection. Males often initiate a dance of rapid, tight turns upon encountering a pheromone trail, then waggle down it (chase swimming) to the signalling female. She jumps away after initial contact, and the male follows. Many successive approach, bump and jump sequences follow, with mating eventually ensuing. The actual copulatory clasp and spermatophore transfer were not observed, although a few instances of brief attachment and tandem swimming were seen. Male dances occur at times when chase swimming does not follow, and the function of dances is not yet known.
