ABSTRACT The life history of Periclimenes ornatus, an obligate symbiont of the sea anemone Parasicyonis maxima, was studied in southwest Japan. Ovigerous females occurred year-round, and the proportion of such females was high from May-November. Most of the settlement of juveniles took place from August―October. Females had higher growth rates and attained larger sizes at sexual maturity than males. The eggs of P. ornatus were of about average dimensions among caridean shrimps, but the brood size was relatively large. Most juveniles that settled in August and early September attained sexual maturity and reproduced within the year (the first generation), whereas juveniles that settled later did not reach maturity within the year. The immature shrimps that had overwintered reached maturity in the next reproductive season (the second generation). A fraction of the first generation survived into the next reproductive season and, together with the second generation, was the source of the following generations.
