Abstract: The morphology of the zoeal stages IX and XI of the shrimp Thalassocaris lucida is described and illustrated in detail from plankton specimens identified by barcoding of the mitochondrial 16S ribosomal RNA gene (sequence similarities 99.4-99.6%). The present study confirms the larval morphology of Thalassocaris, that shows distinct features within Pandaloidea: (1) carapace broad and dorsoventrally flattened, (2) coxal endite of maxilla with only one lobe, (3) basis of third maxilliped with a distal globose lobe. On the other hand, the funnel-shaped eyes, and the development with long series of larval stages of Thalassocaris indicate affinities with some genera of Pandalidae which corroborates the results of recent phylogenetic analyses in abandoning the family status of Thalassocarididae.
