Vor der Küste von Curaçao traten im September 1970 und Oktober 1980 riesige, monospezifische Schwärme von Megalopa-Larven auf. Die Larven ließen sich als zur Unter-familie Portuninae gehörig identifizieren. Sie unterscheiden sich aber von allen bisher beschriebenen Megalopa-Larven und können deshalb nicht genauer bestimmt werden. Mögliche Mechanismen, die zur Bildung und zur Aufrechterhaltung solcher Schwärme führen, werden kurz erörtert.
