Dear folks
Would anyone know what "Daphnées" means?
The context is ecological information on a chemical product:
Poisson: CL 50(96h) supérieure à 100 mg/l
Daphnées: CE50(48h): supérieure à 100 mg/l
Many thanks in advance for any suggestions!

agree  Bourth (X): Guess why the name "Daphne" went out of fashion (girls kept getting thrown into aquaria)./Not in English, certainly. At (a muscular) 107kg I'm mon petit poussin to my chère et tendre and no one finds it the least bit funny!

  -> Yeah, and you can't really say "Come here, my little water flea" and sustain the mood.
