First Zoea of Sesarmops intermedius (De Haan, 1835) (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Sesarmidae) Lee, Hwa Ja;
The first zoeal characters of Sesarmops intermedius (De Haan, 1835) [=Sesarma (Sesarma) intermedium], belonging to the family Sesarmidae, are described and illustrated in detail based on laboratory-hatched material from a female collected from Gangjeung, Seogwipo, Jeju Island. Morphological comparison is performed based on previous descriptions of Sesarma (Sesarma) intermedium from Japan and three other species in the Sesarmidae. The first zoea of Sesarmops intermedius can be readily distinguished from those of the three species Chiromantes haematocheir [=Sesarma (Holometopus) haematocheir], Chiromantes dehaani [=Sesarma (Holometopus) dehaani], and Parasesarma pictum [=Sesarma (Parasesarma) pictum] by the presence of two setae on the exopod of the antenna, fine setae on the inner and outer margin of the forked spine of the telson, and three aesthetascs and one simple seta on the antennule.
