ABSTRACT The first embryonic cuticle molted by a developing Eulimnadia antlei (Conchostraca) is featureless and inelastic. The second molt produces an elastic cuticle with two pouches apparently developed over anlagen of the antennae. Comparison of this situation with the data available on embryonic development and eclosion in Artemia (Anostraca) indicates that the hatching membrane in Artemia also results from a second embryonic ecdysis. Observations on anostracan, conchostracan, and notostracan eggs indicate that the outer cuticular membrane in Artemia is part of the first embryonic cuticle. Morris and Afzelius (1967) described this structure, but could not determine whether it was part of the embryonically produced cuticle or the maternally produced tertiary envelope. Information currently available indicates anostracans in the family Chirocephalidae, unlike Artemiidae, molt only one embryonic membrane.
