Newly-hatched forms of the caridean shrimp Synalpheus brooksi were obtained from ovigerous females removed from loggerhead sponges in Biscayne Bay. The newly-hatched animals were most often postlarval in form indicating a direct development for this species. In a number of instances, however, the animals hatched as late zoeae, which most often molted to the postlarval form within several hours. The late zoea, called “pseudo-larva” here, and the normally-hatching postlarva are described and illustrated.
