The complete larval development (eight zoeae and megalopa) of Periclimenes sagittifer (Norman, 1861) (Decapoda: Palaemonidae: Pontoniinae) from laboratory- reared material is described and illustrated. The mor- phology of the first larval stage is compared with previous larval descriptions of other species in the genus (P. agag, P. americanus, P. calmani, P. diversipes, P. grandis and P. pandionis). The importance of chemical settlement cues for late stage Periclimenes larvae is discussed.
