Abstract
    Embryonic development in two coastal lagoon crabs, Eurypanopeus canalensis and Panopeus chilensis,is described. Embryos were sampled and illustrated at intervals of 48 hours. The complete embryonic developmentat 26-28ºC was similar (13 ± 1 day) for both species. Growth was synchronous and appendages were formedduring the same periods for the two species. Differences were observed in eye size and cephalothorax-abdomen proportions. The egg-volume increased significantly, three differences statistically in volume were detected for E.Canalensis and two for P. chilensis, especially at the two last stages of development.
