Planktonic decapods in the Catuama Inlet were represented by 27 taxa (Table 1), being distributed in 13 families: Sergestoida (2), Caridea (2), Anomura (2), Thalassinidea (2) and Brachyura (5), besides of non-identified taxa in Hippidea and Stenopodidea.
There were occurrences of larvae in early stages of development in all families, and more advanced stages, such as post-larvae, zoea IV or more, megalopa, and glaucothoe were recorded in almost every groups, except in Stenopodidea and Hippidea (Tables 2-3).
