Abstract

The embryology and early larval development of Gonodactylus falcatus (Forsskal) were studied, based on eggs reared and hatched in the laboratory. The larval development was followed up to the fourth larval stage when all the larvae died. Observations on the behaviour of larvae, their feeding habits and moulting periodicity were also made. Differences in the larval characters between the present series and the ones described earlier have been discussed.
