THE LARVAL DEVELOPMENT OF PALAEMONETES PALUDOSUS (GIBBES, 1850) (DECAPODA, PALAEMONIDAE), REARED IN THE LABORATORY 1 ) BY SHELDON DOBKIN Institute of Marine Science, University of Miami, Florida, U.S.A. INTRODUCTION The genus Palaenionete,f contains species occupying a wide variety of habitats from marine conditions to fresh water. The larval development of many species of Palaer?lo?zete.r has been studied at least in part. Du Cane (1839), Boas (1880, 1889), Sollaud ( 1.923 ) and Gurney (1924) have contributed to our knowledge of the larval development of the European brackish water form Palaenzoiiete3- varians (Leach ) . The early life history of P. vul aar?i.r (Say) was studied by Smith (1873), Faxon (1879) and Broad (1957), the last paper primarily being con- cerned with the detailed description of the larvae of P. pugio Holthuis. Both P. vulgaf°i.r and P. pugio are brackish water species of the Atlantic coast of the United States. The larval development of P. vulgaris, P. pugio, and P. variara.r is quite similar, consisting of six or more stages (intermolts), with the larvae of the different species being morphologically alike. Studies of the larval stages of the fresh water species of Palaemonete.r has in several cases shown a
