Nauplius larvae have only three pairs of head appendages that are used for swimming or feeding.
Larvae stages of Nauplius, Zoae 1 and Zoae 2 were collected every two days (50 larvae each time) to detect the presence of EHP using PCR.
As in many other copepods, the nauplius eye of monstrilloids consists of one median and two lateral ocelli, each within a pigment cup.
In both rearing experiments, reared nauplius larvae reached first-stage mysis at least 12 days after hatching (DAH), except for a group fed the NIES-3737 strain of Aurantiochytrium limacinum, in which all larvae died before reaching mysis stage.
Another research on Lernanthropus latis life cycle revealed that the time taken by nauplius stage to moult is six to 12 hours, copepodid I is 24 to 36 hours, and the remaining copepodid II, III, IV, V and immature stage was 54 hours, 78 hours, 126 hours, 174 hours, and 222 hours respectively [15].
As for copepods, only the larval forms (nauplius and copepodite) were frequent and appeared in the five studied environments.
All the animals were counted under a binocular microscope, and nauplius, copepodite, and adult stages were noted.

Biramous limbs and nauplius larvae, apomorphic characters for crustaceans, can readily be optimized on an evolutionary tree, showing students why these taxa and other crustaceans share taxonomic identity.
From their early nauplius and protozoa larva stages they remain in the deep waters, the pelagic zone that is neither close to shore nor the ocean bottom.
