SEM investigations of laboratory-reared larvae of Briarosaccus tenellus Boschma, 1970, revealed five naupliar instars, one more than previously described for the Rhizocephala. The external features of these and the cypris larva are described in detail. The youngest instar (NO) is characterised by a better developed furca than in subsequent stages and one additional antennulary seta.
