Abstract: The complete larval development is described forPorcellana platycheles (Pennant) reared under laboratory conditions. The development consists of two zoeal stages and one megalopa. At 20°C and 35‰ salinity, the megalopa appeared 17–18 days after hatching. Survival was 56% from hatching to the megalopa stage. The morphological features of the zoeal and megalopa stages ofP. platycheles are compared with those of other species ofPorcellana, and a key of the known zoeal stages of the genus is given.
