On the early larval development of Caridina sp.\ud (Crustacea, Decapoda, Atyidae)

By S Lakshmi


The early larval development of Caridina sp. collected from the low-saline\ud inshore waters of Cochin is described. The larvae hatch out in relatively advanced\ud stage and pass through 5 moults during a period of 11 days, under laboratory\ud conditions. Rearing iexperiments were carried out in the medium with salinity,\ud 16-17%. and at temperature, 28.0°C to 28.5°C. IDescriptions of the adult\ud shrimp and the first three zoeal stages are given with illustrations. A comparison\ud of the eariy larval development of Caridina sp, with that of the allied species is\ud made
