  author={Raffaella Berera and V. Cottarelli},
The post-embryonic development of Psammopsyllus maricae Cottarelli, Saporito & Puccetti, 1983 has been described for the first time. Six morphologically distinct naupliar and five copepodid stages were discerned and studied using light microscopy. Some features were also examined by scanning electron microscopy.
