The complete larval development of Pagurus simulans is described, based on laboratory rearing. The species has four zoeal stages and a megalopa. The larvae are described and illustrated, and detailed comparisons are made with other closely related species. Adults of P. simulans have been confused with those of P. brachiomastus and P. proximus. However, the larvae of P. simulans show morphological differences with those of similar species in the shape of the telson process and in the setal formulae of the appendages. Le développement larvaire complet de Pagurus simulans obtenu en laboratoire est décrit. L'espèce a quatre stades zoés et un stade mégalope. Les larves sont décrites et illustrées, et des comparaisons détaillées sont faites avec d'autres espèces proches. Les adultes de P. simulans ont été confondus avec ceux de P. brachiomastus et P. proximus. Cependant, les larves de P. simulans montrent des différences morphologiques par rapport aux espèces similaires dans la forme du telson et dans le nombre et l'arrangement des soies des appendices.
