The taxon originally described from southern California as Pagurus hirsutiusculus venturensis Coffin, 1957 has been critically reexamined, Comparison with a Puget Sound, Washington, population of P. hirsutiusculus hirsutiusculus (Dana) has shown that the two taxa represent distinct species. Pagurus venturensis is redescribed and illustrated. The zoeal, megalopal, and early juvenile stages of this species are described and illustrated for the first time from specimens reared under laboratory conditions. Zoeae and megalopae of P. venturensis are compared with similar stages of P. hirsutiusculus from Puget Sound and northern California populations. These data provide additional evidence of the distinctiveness of the two taxa.
