Six non-overlapping size classes and morphologically distinct nauplius stages of Parastenocaris phyllura are studied using light microscopy. The nauplii have been reared in laboratory cultures. A comparative analysis of the morphology of the nauplius stages of P. phyllura and P. vicesima (cf. Schminke, 1982) is presented.
