The morphology of the final phyllosoma larval stage of the slipper lobster Scyllarus pygmaeus is described and illustrated based on larvae captured from Mediterranean waters and compared with those described in other Scyllaridae. These larvae were always found in deep waters (.200 m). Nucleotide sequence analysis of a region of the nuclear 28S rDNA gene identified these larvae as S. pygmaeus, the morphology of which had been previously un-described. An intensive review revealed a… CONTINUE READING
