Agata, Messina, Italy ABSTRACT The paper describes the main differences between larval and post-larval Pontonia pinnophylax and P. flavomaculata, the type-species and the other Mediterranean member of the genus Pontonia, respectively. RÉSUMÉ Les auteurs signalent les principales différences que l'on rencontre dans les étapes du développe- ment entre l'espèce type du genre Pontonia, P pinnophylax, et l'autre espèce méditerranéenne, P. flavomaculata. INTRODUCTION In a previous paper (Calafiore et al., 1991), the larval development of the type- species of the genus Pontonia, P. pinnophylax (Otto, 1821), was described. In this paper, we report only the main differences with respect to the type-species, evident in the various developmental stages of this second species of the genus living in the Mediterranean, Pontonia flavomaculata Heller, 1864. The first zoeal stage of P. flavomaculata was described previously by Gourret (1884, 1888) and later on by Bourdillon-Casanova (1960). MATERIALS AND METHODS The larvae were reared in small aquaria
