The larvae are compared with those from the closely related N. pulchella; the zoeae of the two species differing in the structure of the tips of the antennal protopod, the proportions of the antennal exopod, the tips of the forks of the telson, as well as the setation of the antennal exopod, basal endite of the maxillule, dorsal surfaces of abdominal somites 2 to 5, and lateral margins of the forks of the telson.
