Abstract: The larval development of Petrolisthes zacae Haig, 1968, an eastern
Pacific species of porcellanid crab that inhabits mangrove forests, is completely
described and illustrated. Development consists of a prezoeal stage, two zoeal
stages, and a megalopal stage. The zoeae and megalopae of P. zacae are quite similar
to those of P. armatus but can be distinguished from the latter by several morphological
features. The larvae of P. zacae are compared to those of both Atlantic and
Pacific P. armatus, wherein the close relationship exhibited by the larvae of all three
forms reaffirms that already noted for adults of the two species.
