The MV CALANUS expeditions to Ungava Bay during 1947-51 collected from the plankton approximately 11 000 specimens of larvae of decapod crustaceans comprising 12 species. The larval stages of these species are described and drawings made in detail from the specimens taken.
As representative species of the eastern Canadian Arctic and northwestern Atlantic, they are compared briefly with the same species from the eastern Atlantic and Pacific. Characteristics of eight species of the Hippolytidae, four of the Pandalidae, three of the Crangonidae, two of the Paguridae and two of the Majidae from the northwestern Atlantic are summarized and keys given for their identification.
