Abstract

The larvae of Pseudocarcinus gigas, obtained from females collected from eastern Tasmania, were reared from hatching to metamorphosis. The larval series has five zoeal and one megalopal stages. This paper presents a description of these stages and a comparison with other members of the subfamily Oziinae.
