ABSTRACT The development of Uca subcylindrica, a fiddler crab endemic to southern Texas and northeastern Mexico, is described on the basis of laboratory-reared larvae. Females produce relatively few ( = 580), large ( = 1.06 mm) eggs. The eggs hatch as late zoeae in an advanced developmental condition. This stage is followed within half a day by a similar zoeal stage. Within as little as 2.5 d, most zoeae metamorphose to advanced megalopae. Molt to first crab is completed for most by 8 d. The larval development of U. subcylindrica is abbreviated, both ecdysially and durationally, an adaptation which enables this species to take advantage of periodic rainfall in a semiarid environment.
