KHOO Fisheries Biology Laboratory, Department of Zoology, National University of Singapore, Kent Ridge Campus, Singapore 0511, Republic of Singapore INTRODUCTION Of the 13 species of Macrobrachium that have so far been reported from Malaysia and Singapore by Johnson (1962, 1966, 1968) complete or partial life histories of only five are known: M. rosenbergii (De Man, 1879) (cf. Ling & Merican, 1961; Uno & Kwon, 1969), M. equidens (Dana, 1852) (cf. Nguyen, 1976), M. lanchesteri (De Man, 1911 ) (cf. Tay, 1968), M. sintangense (De Man, 1898) (cf. Sabar, 1979), and M. lar (Fabricius, 1798) (cf. Atkinson, 1977). The life histories of the remaining 8 species-M. pilimanus (De Man, 1879), M. malayanum (Roux, 1934), M. geron Holthuis, 1950, M. j*avanicum (Heller, 1862), M. latidactylus (Thallwitz, 1891), M. idae (Heller, 1862), M. scabriculum (Heller, 1862), and M. trompii (De Man, 1879)-are not known.
