The Hepatus pudibundus (Herbst, 1785) juvenile development was studied in laboratory, under the morphological and systematical stand points. The eight early juvenile stages were obtained from larvae hatched from eggs of two ovigerous females, collected at the northern coast of the State of São Paulo, Brazil. The experiments were carried out in a cl...

The present work is the first report of Dardanus venosus (H. Milne Edwards, 1848) in São Paulo State and extends the range of this species in the western Atlantic farther to the south in the Brazilian region. A total of twenty two males (mean shield length: 7.56 ± 1.62 mm, 4.7 to 10.9 mm), and fifteen females (7.25 ± 2.53 mm, 4.3 to 14.5 mm) were c...

The developmental stages of Dardanus insignis (Saussure, 1858) from first through eighth zoea and megalopa are described and illuslraled. The experiments were carried out involving 100 larvae, obtained from ovigerous females collected on the north littoral of the state of São Paulo, Brazil. The larvae were kept in individual containers, with water...

Six zoeal stages and the megalopa of the comestible crab Ucides cordatus cordatus (Linnaeus, 1763) are described and illustrated. The larvae were reared in the laboratory at temperature 25 ± 1ºC and water salinity of 24‰; duration of stages and survival rates were measured. Comparisons with the descriptions of the zoeal morphologic characters of Oc...

[Le développement larvaire de Persephona mediterranea (Herbst, 1794) a été obtenu en laboratoire à partir des oeufs de femelles ovigères recueillies sur le littoral nord de l'État de Sâo Paulo, Brésil. Les larves ont été élevées, isolées, dans des récipients contenant de l'eau de mer ayant une salinité de 34,5 ‰, et soumises à une température varia...

All the larval stages of the hermit crab Pagurus brevidactylus were studied in the laboratory, with special emphasis on external morphology and on the duration of each stage. The larvae were kept in individual containers, with water of 35‰ salinity and fed on nauplii of Artemia salina; room temperature was maintained at 24±1ºC. The post-embryonic d...

Através de fêmeas ovígeras de Paguristes tortugae Schmitt, 1933, coletadas no litoral Norte do Estado de São Paulo, Brasil, estudou-se a metamorfose, em laboratório, com ênfase especial na morfolcgia externa de cada um dos estágios larvais. Ilustrações e descrições detalhadas são apresentadas para mostrar a sequência das mudanas que ocorrem no deco...

Este trabalho foi realizado com a finalidade de descrever a anatomia externa das larvas de Clibanarius antillensis STIMPSON, 1859 criadas em laboratório. Os estádio de zoea e megalopa foram descritos. Fêmeas ovígeras foram coletadas em praias de S. Sebastião, São Paulo, Brasil. Os animais foram mantidos até a eclosão no laboratório em água do mar f...

... Therefore, long larval stages are usually related to high dispersal capacity and levels of gene flow and reduced population genetic structure [7][8][9]. However, some studies revealed that high levels of connectivity and genetic homogeneity were not nec- Some morphological differences were found between larvae from Brazil and Panama and Mexico populations, such as the number of antennular aesthetascs, the number of denticles of crista dentate of the third maxilliped, the development of the external lobe of the maxillule and endopod of the maxilla [34][35][36]. Additionally, distinct coloration patterns were found among adults from different localities [37]. ...
... Typically, coastal hermit crabs reproduce during the warm months, probably due to food availability and the acceleration of metamorphosis at higher temperatures (Negreiros-Fransozo and Fransozo 1992). However, Hebling and Negreiros-Fransozo (1983) observed that P. tortugae do not feed during the larval stages, and recruitment could continue throughout the year. The observed pattern could be part of a survival strategy, so that larvae of P. tortugae develop in synchrony with other planktonic species, which could decrease predation pressure. ...

... A similar result was also found by Taddei and Herrera (2010), who reported larger asymptotic size for females of Dilocarcinus pagei (Stimpson 1861) in the Barra Mansa in São Paulo. In addition, Liu and Li (2000) mentioned that freshwater crabs (Trichodactylidae) have direct development and oocytes with a larger diameter when compared to marine crabs, which is a characteristic associated with evolution and conquest to the freshwater environment (Mansur and Hebling 2002). Giménez and Anger (2003), studying Chasmagnathus grannulata (Dana 1851), reported the egg size may be associated with larval development. ...

... There are few studies addressing the biology of the genus Persephona, most of them performed in the Ubatuba region, along the northern coast of the state of São Paulo. Negreiros-Fransozo et al. (1989), described the larval development of P. mediterranea; Bertini et al. (2001) and Pereira et al. (2014) reported the spatial-temporal distribution of three species of Persephona; Bertini et al. (2010) estimated the reproductive period and sexual maturity of P. mediterranea in Ubatuba; and Almeida et al. (2013) compared the relative growth, sexual maturity, and reproductive period of three species of the genus. A taxonomic review of the genus was published by Magalhães (2016), and comparative analysis of the distribution and sexual maturity of P. lichteinsteiini and P. punctata was performed by Carvalho et al. (2010) on the coast of Ilhéus, state of Bahia. ...
