Five zoeal stages and the first juvenile stage of the crangonid shrimp Philocheras monacanthus are described and illustrated from laboratory-reared specimens. Development to the first juvenile stage took 15 days at 18°C and 36‰ salinity. Larval morphology is compared with that of other described species of Philocheras, and a provisional key is provided.
