[The larval development of the palaemonid prawn, Macrobrachium lanchesteri (De Man) was observed under laboratory conditions. Metamorphosis to post-larva was first observed 30 days after hatching at a temperature of 26°-28°C and in freshwater. Nine larval stages (Zoea I to Zoea IX) were observed and described. The pattern of development is considered in relation to other Macrobrachium species with similar number of larval stages. In relation to larval developmental mode, M. lanchesteri is most similar to M. niloticum from northern Africa. These are the only species in the genus with the fifth pcreiopod appearing as a rudimentary bud in the first larval stage and fully formed by the second or the third stage. The size of the fifth pereiopod is also considerably larger than in other species of the genus at the same stage of development., The larval development of the palaemonid prawn, Macrobrachium lanchesteri (De Man) was observed under laboratory conditions.
