This common name refers to only one order.

Arthropod Order Copepoda

These are pretty much always called Copepods.
Copepods make up a substantial part of the base of the food chain in many aquatic stillwater systems. They are not as important in trout streams, but I have collected a few from still off-channel habitats.
