ABSTRACT The complete larval development of Cryptodromia pileifera Alcock, 1899, under laboratory conditions, is described. It consists of only one zoeal and one megalopal stage. This is the first dromiid crab reported to have only one zoeal stage. The zoea is unique in that it lacks the hairlike process on the telson that is characteristic of all other known dromiid larvae. The presence or absence of free-swimming larval stages in the life cycles and their effect on the distribution of the Dromiidae are also briefly discussed.
