The eggs, larvae, and juveniles of Haemulon plumieri are described based on specimens cultured in the laboratory from wild-caught fertilized eggs taken in March 1973. The description is based on 4 eggs and 60 larvae and juveniles and includes a description of the osteological development based on 20 specimens which were cleared and stained. The larvae undergo rapid development with full complements of fin rays present by 9.5 mm SL. The fins develop in the following sequence: caudal, anal and second dorsal, first dorsal, pelvics, and pectorals. Pigmentation changes are illustrated.
