DUPRE, ENRIQUE; FLORES, LUIS  y  PALMA, SERGIO. Larval development of the rock shrimp Rhynchocinetes typus Milne Edwards, 1937 (Decapoda, Caridea) reared in the laboratory. Rev. chil. hist. nat. [online]. 2008, vol.81, n.2, pp.155-170. ISSN 0716-078X.

The first description of the larval stages of a representative of the family Rhynchocinetidae from the southeastern Pacific coast of South América is presented. Larvae of the rock shrimp Rhynchocinetes typus, from rocky subtidal environment of the Chile-Pera coast were reared in the laboratory at 22 °C, salinity 32 and feeding with Anemia franciscana. Seven zoeal stages, which occur through 10 successive moults, are described and illustrated in detail. Morphological comparison made between R. typus and other congeneric and related species belonging to Rhynchocinetid showed the main characteristic for the diagnosis of zoeal stages are: (a) the pereiopods appear in the third stage, (b) the exopod of the antennae have six segments, and (c) no pleopods were found on the seven stages. The main difference with related species was the presence of three lacinia in the right mandible at stage VIL.
