ABSTRACT A rapid molt-staging technique has been developed for the fiddler crab Uca pugilator. Morphological characteristics of setae on the pleopods and the extent of epidermal retraction were used to define the molt stages (A-B, C, D, E) and substages (D0, D1, D2, D3–4) of the fiddler crab. The significance of molt staging as it relates to biochemical and biophysical events is also addressed.
