Abstract
    Eggs and larvae of L. nicholsi are described from laboratory-reared and field collected specimens. Eggs are small and compressed, the two axes averaging 0.72 and 0.50 mm. Larvae are 2.4 mm notochord length (NL) at hatching. Distinguishing features of L. nicholsi larvae are early development of pectoral in rays, extremely dark and deeply-notched pectoral membranes, and the lack of pronounced preopercular spination.
