Abstract

Based on the classification of Afzelius (1971), the spermatozoa of marine invertebrates can be categorized into 1) primitive 2) simplified 3) modified and 4) atypical type. He has ,also correlated the morphological features of the spermatozoa with the type of fertilization. Decapod crustaceans are peculiar in possessing non-flagellate, vesiculiform spermatozoa (Nath, 1956).
