Abstract

The two zoeal and the megalopal stages of Petrolisthes robsonae, are described and illustrated from laboratory-reared larvae. Larval features are compared with those previously described for other species of Petrolisthes in the eastern Pacific. Larvae of P. robsonae exhibit similar but not identical features to those seen in other Petrolisthes species. A number of similarities are found with P. zacae while main differences are found with P. granulosus,P. platymerus and P. laevigatus. Differences with these species are related to the setation of maxilla and maxillule and the rows of denticles in carapace spines.
