The larval development of Diaptomus (Aglaodiaptomus) leptopus S. A. Forbes, 1882, has been illustrated from specimens of a single population taken in September 1979 from a small acidic lake located north to Montreal, Quebec in the downhill of the Canadian precambrian shield. For each nauplius instar, the following features were illustrated: body form, antennules, antennae, mandibles, maxillules, maxillae, maxillipeds and the first two swimming legs. The body form and the length of instars change from a small, rounded NI (0,177 mm) through a pear-shaped form in NVI (0,359 mm). Comparative analyses of nauplius instar development of Diaptomus spp. from North America were carried out in an attempt to provide useful taxonomic characteristics to identify immature diaptomids.
