Caption: Shrimp larva. Polarised light micrograph of the larval stage (zoaea) of the common prawn (Leander serratus). Many crustaceans pass through several larvae stages, here the hatched larva has already developed to the zoaea stage. In front of the head are the antennules. The black stalked compound eyes are on the sides of the orange carapace. There are three pairs of appendages (1st-3rd maxillipeds). The yellow abdomen is segmented and ends in a purple fork-like structure. Magnification: x36 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
