Four zoeal stages. and one megalopa stage of the mangrove crab Sesarma brockii de Man obtained; as a result of laboratory rearing from a berried mother collected and maintained from the wild are described and illustrated. The larval characters are also comj>ared at length with those of two other Indian species, S. tetragoniim and S. lanatum.

Influence of salinity on larval development of the mangrove crab Sesarma hrockii de Man
TLDR
The influence of salinity on the larval development of the mangrove crab Sesarma brockii was studied in 8 different salinities from 5 to 40 ppt with 5 ppt increment and complete morality was recorded within 24 hours at the maximum.
A NEW GENUS AND SPECIES OF TREE-CLIMBING CRAB (CRUSTACEA: BRACHYURA: SESARMIDAE) FROM TAIWAN WITH NOTES ON ITS ECOLOGY AND LARVAL MORPHOLOGY
TLDR
Morphologically, this species is superficially similar to species of other semi-terrestrial sesarmid genera, but differs from these taxa by the shape of the anterolateral carapace region, by the markedly flattened fingers.
A review of studies on Pichavaram mangrove, southeast India
TLDR
The mangrove harboured a large number of juvenile fishes, especially during summer and post-monsoon, and 90% of the mangroves cover in the study area was degraded, suggesting possible factors that cause degradation of the ecosystem are detailed and remedial measures suggested.
Morphology of the first zoeal stages of eleven Sesarmidae (Crustacea, Brachyura, Thoracotremata) from the Indo-West Pacific, with a summary of familial larval characters
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a recurrent combination of reliable larval characters distinguishes zoeae and megalopae of the examined sesarmids from the rest of the Grapsoidea, which appears to be consistent with recent studies that redefine the Sesarmidae.
RE-EXAMINATION OF THE ZOEAL MORPHOLOGY OF CHASMAGNATHUS GRANULATUS, CYCLOGRAPSUS LAVAUXI, HEMIGRAPSUS SEXDENTATUS, AND H. CRENULATUS CONFIRMS CONSISTENT CHAETOTAXY IN THE VARUNIDAE (DECAPODA, BRACHYURA)
TLDR
The shared 2,2 setal pattern on the endopod of the maxilla and the same type of antenna and telson in all of these species, confirm a close phylogenetic relationship among them and their placement within the family Varunidae.
