Larval and juvenile Eucinostomus currani are described based on pigmentation, meristics and morphometric characteristics of 198 specimens collected in Bahía de La Paz and Ensenada de La Paz, B.C.S., Mexico. Diagnostic characteristics are the presence of head melanophores and several punctuate melanophores scattered over the lateral surface of the gut from early stages, a tricolour pigment pattern forming on the dorsal fin in postflexion stage and black stripes on the flanks of prejuveniles and juveniles.
