Complete larval history of M.latifrons was studied in larvae spawned and reared in the laboratory. At 23_28cC temperature and salinity 27-3Wooo 5 zoeal stages were observed followed by a megalopa stage. Morphological features of these larvae were compared with those of M. messor. Important characters of zoeal stages and megalopa were discussed.
