Abstract :The atyid shrimp Caridina brevirostris Stimpson was reared in the laboratory from egg to young shrimp. This shrimp bears large eggs containing much yolk, and the egg hatches as a considerably advanced zoea of benthonic habit. The zoeal larva reaches the first juvenile stage passing through a megalopal stage by at least 3 days. In this report some characteristics of the larvae and juvenile are described and illustrated. The newly-hatched larva shows the adult form in all the appendages but the uropods. Until juvenile, the larvae do not take food, subsisting on the stored yolk.
