Abstract

The leptocephalus of Muranesox talaborl generally occurs in the 'dol' net catches along with that of Muranesox talabonoides and the collection contains several specimens and 2 elvers (vide Introduction, Nair and Mohamed, 1960 a). Some of the larva: showed the full set of larval teeth while in the others they have fallen off indicating the commencement of metamorphosis. A few leptocephali showing intermediate stages of metamorphosis and the elvers present in the collection made it possible to get a more or less connected series of stages in the transformation.
