Larval Crabs

    Article metrics


    AN important addition to our knowledge of development in the Brachyura is contained in Hiroaki Aikawa's recent work “On Larval Forms of some Brachyura” (Records of Oceanographical Works in Japan, vol. 2, No. 1; 1929). The author has hatched out the young of twenty-four species of Japanese crabs, and from these first zoeas each genus can be quite easily recognised.
