Within recent years our knowledge of crustacean embryology has been augmented by the work of Prof. H. G. Cannon on the Branchiopoda, and that of Dr. S. M. Manton on the Leptostraca and Mysidacea. Nothing, however, has been published on the embryology of the Syncarida.* An examination of the development of Anaspides tasmaniae Thomson was therefore undertaken. The investigation was carried out at the University of Tasmania during the years 1932-36. The following pages contain an account of the work accomplished up to the end of that period. It is hoped eventually to supplement this research by a further examination of the post-embryonic development.
