Abstract

We describe the brood duration and marsupial development of three temperate coastal mysid species, Anisomysis mixta australis (Zimmer), Tenagomysis tasmaniae Fenton and Paramesopodopsis rufa Fenton, found commonly in Tasmanian waters. Larvae cultured in vitro had brood durations at 13 °C (17 °C) of 22 (15), 23 (15), and 28 (20) d, respectively. Development through seven larval stages, and brood durations for these three species are similar to those reported for coastal mysids from other temperate areas throughout the world.
