Abstract
    Canuella perplexa is often a dominant species in meiobenthic communities of the northern hemisphere. The biology (propulsion, feeding behaviour, precopulatory behaviour, and hatching) and larval development of this species were examined on animals reared in the laboratory. Characters of the nauplius which were considered by Lang (1948) to be diagnostic of the Polyarthra will have to be reexamined in the light of the results on C. perplexa. The post-embryonic stages of the Canuellidae are morphologically different from the larval stages of the also primitive Longipediidae.
