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.
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.
Larval Development in Peltogasterella Studied by Scanning Electron Microscopy (Crustacea: Cirripedia: Rhizocephala)
Comparisons with larval development in Briarosaccus tenellus leads to the conclusion that the rhizocephalan ground pattern comprises six naupliar stages just as in other cirripedes (e.g., Thoracica).

The occurrence of mature and juvenile specimens indicates the existence of a stable population of this species in the investigated region, and substantially extends the distribution area of S. balssi in the Sea of Japan.
Larval Development in the Rhizocephalan Barnacle Sacculina pilosella
The larval development of a rhizocephalan barnacle Sacculina pilosella, which parasitizes the kelp crab Pugettia quadridens in Vostok Bay, Sea of Japan, is studied under laboratory conditions.
Morphological features of the larvae of spider crab Pugettia quadridens (Decapoda: Majidae) from the Northwestern Sea of Japan
The entire cycle of larval development of the spider crab Pugettia quadridens (de Haan, 1850) (Decapoda: Majidae), widespread in Peter the Great Bay (Sea of Japan) is studied under the laboratory…
Life History of the Barnacle Balanus Amphitrite Darwin and Its Role in Fouling Communities of Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan
It was shown that in Peter the Great Bay there is dependent population of B. amphitrite inhabiting the anthropogenic substrates only in the warm season: water works, idle vessels, and operational offshore vessels, where the water temperature is the limiting factor of successful acclimation of that species.

The main factors contributing to the high abundance of P. proximus in the investigated area are the presence of the embryonic diapause synchronizing the release of larvae at the most favourable time for their development, high fecundity, the existence of at least two egg clutches during the reproductive season, and total absence of parasites.
Larval development of the rhizocephalanSacculina polygenea (Crustacea: Cirripedia)
Larval development of the rhizocephalan Sacculina polygenea parasitizing the coastal crab Hemigrapsus sanguineus was studied in Vostok Bay, the Sea of Japan and no morphological differences, except differences in size, are found between male and female nauplii.
