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 conditions. The development cycle of this species comprises prezoea, zoea I, zoea II, and megalopa. At a temperature of 18–20°C larval development took from 11 to 15 days. Zoea II is described in detail for the first time. Many morphological characters are found distinguishing zoea and megalopa of P… Expand
