ABSTRACT The development of bilateral asymmetry in the extensor muscle of the paired chelipeds in male fiddler crabs, Uca pugnax, occurs by the differential elongation of sarcomeres in the major and minor chelipeds so that the major muscle is eventually composed of all long (>6 µm) sarcomeres and the minor muscle of an equal mixture of intermediates (4-6 µm) and long (>6 µm).
