ABSTRACT Larvae of the fiddler crab Uca tangeri were reared from ovigerous females from the Gulf of Cadiz, Spain. Development consisted of 5 zoeal stages and a megalopa, with each zoeal stage lasting for approximately 3 days and the megalopa 10 days at preferred 25°C. A detailed description of larval morphology is given, and comparison is made with other species of Uca for which partial or complete descriptions are available. The zoeal stages of U. tangeri are unique among previously described members of the genus in the possession of lateral carapace spines, the absence of lateral spines having been used previously to separate the zoeae of Uca from those of Ocypode.
