The gross morphology of the embryonic development of two porcelain crabs from distinct habitats, Petrolisthes robsonae (coastal lagoon) and P. armatus (sea shore intertidal) is described and illustrated at 48 hour intervals from oviposition to hatching. The development of the two species is compared with each other, since no information is available on the embryology of other porcelain crabs. The development of the two species is highly similar and the whole process lasts about 19 days at an ambient temperature of 25-26°C. La morphologie de l'embryon de deux espèces de crabes porcelaines provenant de deux habitats différents, Petrolisthes robsonae (lagune côtière) et P. armatus (intertidal marin) est décrite et illustrée pour chaque intervale de 48 heures à partir de l'oviposition et jusqu'à l'éclosion. Les deux développements sont comparés entre-eux du fait qu'il n'existe pas de développement connu pour ce groupe. Les deux développements sont extrêmement similaires et durent environ 19 jours à une température de 25-26°C.
