The larval development of Diaptomus (Aglaodiaptomus) leptopus S. A. Forbes, 1882, through copepodites to the adult stage has been described and illustrated, using specimens of a single population taken in September 1979 from a small acidic lake located to the north of Montreal, Quebec, in the downhill of the Canadian precambrian shield. For each of the copepodite stages and for the adults, in addition to a dorsal view of body, drawings of antennules, leg P1 to P4 and fifth legs are presented. Thirteen tables listing the numbers of segments of all appendages, as well as their setation, position and instar in which they appear, are included. The length of the copepodite instars varies from 0,380 mm (C1) to 1,187 mm (C6). Comparative analysis of instar development of Diaplomus spp. from North America was carried out in an attempt to provide useful taxonomic characters to identify immature diaptomids.
