LARVAL STAGES OF THE SHRIMP, OGYRIDES LIMICOLA WILLIAMS, 1955 (DECAPODA, CARIDEA) OBTAINED IN THE LABORATORY1) BY PAUL A. SANDIFER Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Gloucester Point, Virginia 23062, U.S.A.2) INTRODUCTION Gurney (1942) has suggested that to be soundly based, any classification of the Decapoda must take into account the larval phase. In this regard, Williamson (1967) remarked: "Knowledge of the larvae of no family can be said to be fully adequate, and every uninvestigated genus or species is liable to show features which may shed light not only on its own taxonomic position but also on the groupings of higher taxa." Williamson (1967), who followed the classification of Balss (1957), listed nine decapod families for which no larvae are known: Stylo- dactylidae, Eugonatonotidae, Physetocarididae, Psalidopodidae, Gnathophyllidae, Pylochelidae, Lomisidae, Dynomenidae and Retroplumidae. If one follows the classification of Holthuis (1955), the Ogyrididae, a monogeneric family, also should have been included in this list. The small shrimp Ogyrides limicola Williams, 1955, ranges from Virginia to Louisiana along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States (Williams, 1965). The species inhabits muddy bottoms in estuaries, coastal embayments, and marsh streams within an observed salinity range of 9 to 32.5% (Williams,
