Abstract: Three zoeal stages and a megalopa have been observed during development in the laboratory (sal. 30 plus or minus 1%; temp. 29 plus or minus 1 ° C). Characteristics of the zoeal stages and the megalopa are described and compared with other known species of this genus. The zoeal stages and the megalopa can be readily differentiated from other known species based on dorsal spine, length and armature of different appendages, outer spine 1 of telson and sternal spine of leg 4.
