Abstract

Menon (1940) has described the first two stages of the Hippolysmata sp. from Madras waters, whereas Kurien (1951) recorded the eggs and the first stage larva of Hippolysmata vittata (Stimpson) from Krusadi. Bensam and Kartha (1965) have described the eggs and early larval stages of Hippolysmata ensirostris (Kemp). Studies on the larval stages of other species belonging to the Hippolytidae have also been made by Lebour (1931), Gurney (1937 and 1939), Al-kholy (1961), and Sankoli and Kewalramani (1962). In the present paper the life history of Hippolysmata vittata (Stimpson), upto the third larval stage has been described. Several variations in the first stage larval characters of the Hippolysmata vittata, noticed from the descriptions of Kurien (1951) are also brought out in this account.
