ABSTRACT The hatching process and the prezoeal stage of the hair crab Erimacrus isenbeckii (Brandt) is described under laboratory conditions. Most prezoeae shed their embryonic cuticle within 30 min after hatching. The molting process consists of three parts: (1) stretching of the rostral spine, (2) stretching of the antennae, while flicking up of the dorsal and lateral spines, and (3) shedding of the carapace, antennae, maxillipeds, and abdomen. A unique morphological feature was recognized in the prezoeae of this species: the tclsonal processes of the first zoea are protruded into the proximal parts in all processes of the prezoeal telson. The first zoeal stage was also redescribed to complement its larval morphology.
