Breedng season, larval development and diseprsal of Lingula anatina (Brachiopoda, Inarticulata) from Townsville, Australia

Differences between collections of Indo-West Pacific Lingula larvae can be rationalized, and extension of pelagic larval life in lingulid larvae appears to involve a strategy different from that of most other marine invertebrates.


Yatsu (1902) believed that the breeding season of Lingula unguis lasted from mid-July to the end of August in Misaki, Japan, since he could not find the larvae at any other time of the year. Kurne
