Embryology of decapod crustaceans III : Embryonic development of Eurypanopeus canalensis Abele & Kim, 1989, and Panopeus chilensis H. Milne Edwards & Lucas, 1844 (Decapoda, Brachyura, Panopeidae)

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 136(2):249-253.

Embryonic development in two coastal lagoon crabs, Eurypanopeus canalensis and Panopeus chilensis. is described. Embryos were sampled and illustrated at intervals of 48 hours. The complete embryonic development at 26-28 degrees C was similar (13 +/- 1 day) for both species. Growth was synchronous and appendages were formed during the same periods for the two species. Differences were observed in eye size and cephal othorax-abdomen proportions. The egg-volume increased significantly, three differences statistically in volume were detected for E. canalensis and two for P. chilensis, especially at the two last stages of development.
