This submission consists of mitochondrial sequence data and specimen information for two species of copepods, Haloptilus longicornis and Pleuromamma xiphias, collected at an open ocean time series site in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (station ALOHA, 22.45°N, 158°W) during 11 of the routine Hawai‘i Ocean Time-series (HOT) research cruises from September of 2012 to October of 2013 (HOT-246 to HOT-256). Data for Haloptilus longicornis includes a 546 base-pair fragment of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit II for each of 483 individuals (mean of 44 animals per cruise), along with information on the HOT cruise number, date, and specific tow from which each individual was collected. Life stage and sex of each animal are also noted when identifiable. Data for Pleuromamma xiphias includes a 551 base-pair fragment of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I for each of 510 individuals (mean of 46 animals per cruise), along with information on the HOT cruise number, date, and specific tow from which each individual was collected. Life stage and sex of each animal are also noted when identifiable. These data were used to investigate the temporal variation in the genetic composition of populations of these two planktonic copepod species at station ALOHA through an annual cycle. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.
