Kakati, V S (1988) Larval development of the Indian spider crab Elamenopsis demeloi (Kemp) (Brachyura, Hymenosomatidae) in the laboratory. Mahasagar, 21 (4). pp. 219-227.
Complete larval development of the spider crab Eiamenopsis demeloi (Kemp) was studied from larvae hatched and reared from an ovigerous crab in the laboratory. At Z6-Z8°C temperature and 17-20 ppt salinity, three zoeel stages were observed, followed by a first stage crab. A megalopa stage was not present. Morphological features of these larvae are compared with the other species of the family and the important characters that differ from those of other zoeae are: Zaeee with very long mid-dorsal and rostral spines and coxal endite of 2nd maxilla with 2 setas.
