The reproduction and larval development of the sea limpet Lottia persona (Rathke, 1833) were investigated in vitro for the first time. The limpets breed in late July; they have external fertilization and a pelagic lecithotrophic type of development. The larval shell is transparent, symmetrical, and bottle-shaped, with well-pronounced lateral fossae and a large rounded operculum. The protoconch sculpture is characterized by broad wavy lines and radial ribs at the dorsal side. Ventrally, the lines become narrow and are directed perpendicular to those of the dorsal and lateral regions. Development from fertilization to settling lasts 3 days at a water temperature of 19–20°C.
