The larvae of 29 species of Natantia (Decapoda) have been collected in Tigullio Gulf (Ligurian Sea). In addition, four different "types" of unidentified first zoeac of Pandalidae were recognized and discussed. Using the similitude index of Sörensen (1948), it was possible to distinguish main groups of spring-summer and annual species and small groups of late-summer and autumn-winter ones. Comparison of the results obtained with data from other works on Mediterranean planktonic decapod larvae reveals some discrepancies regarding the number of collected species and their distribution throughout the year. These different results could be due to different collecting methods, environmental conditions, and geographical distribution of the adults. The work shows the importance of studying planktonic larvae for a better knowledge of larval development and life history of Crustacea Decapoda.
