Abstract: Early Descriptions of larvae of the Grapsidae,
based largely on material from the plankton
and frequently limited to the first zoeal
stage, suggested considerable uniformity in the
morphological characteristics of larvae of this
group of crabs (Hyman, 1924). Subsequent
descriptions, based on plankton material as well
as on material obtained from rearing the larvae
In the laboratory, have served to point out certain
differences which do exist in the larvae of
this group (Aikawa, 1929; Hart, 1935). To
date, however, a very limited number of larvae
of crabs belonging to the family Grapsidae have
been described.
