MetadataShow full item record
Five nauplial stages and the first protozoeal stage of the seabob (Xiphopeneus kroyeri) have been described from larvae reared in the laboratory. With each molt the larva increases in length and becomes more advanced in its morphology. Differences in body structures among specimens in the same instar were noted and discussed.
