ABSTRACT An alternative method for staging molt cycles is proposed for adult females of the mysid Siriella armata. Cultured females have a 12-day molt and breeding cycle. At the end of each cycle, liberation of the young, ecdysis of the female, copulation, and egg laying occur successively in less than 8 h. A synchronization between marsupial development, secondary ovarian vitellogenesis, and the integumental cycle is observed. Marsupial development is described and its chronology is related to molt cycle staging. Molt stages are defined following Drach's method complemented by an ultrastructural study of the evolution of the integument. The corresponding 12-day cycle of oocyte development in the ovary is described. Embryonic development corresponds to the female postmolt period. The nauplioid phase matches the intermolt period and the postnauplioid phase is simultaneous with the premolt period. Siriella armata is suggested as a suitable experimental organism for studies of the control of molt and reproductive cycle in mysids.
