Illustrated key for the identification of brachyuran zoeal stages (Crustacea: Decapoda) in the plankton of Peter the Great Bay (Sea of Japan)
A dichotomous identification key for brachyuran zoeal stages from Peter the Great Bay (Russian waters of the Sea of Japan) is provided for the first time and uses only the most conspicuous external characters of larvae that are easy to observe under a stereomicroscope without specimens dissection.

Comparative morphology of larvae of coastal crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda: Varunidae)
The larval development of three crabs of the Varunidae family, (Hemigrapsus sanguineus, H. penicillatus, and H. longitarsis), widely spread in Russian waters of the Sea of Japan, were studied under laboratory conditions and a number of distinctive features in all developmental stages were found, supporting the separation of these genera.
