Abstract



Spawning and early development of 4 species of prosobranchs namely Nerita oryzarum, Recluz, Gyrineum natator (Roding), Thais margariticola (Broderip) and T. rugosa (Born) from the rocky shores of Bombay were studied during September 74-February 75. All the 4 species spawned both in the laboratory and in the field during this period. Their spawning behaviour, egg capsules, larval development and hatching have been discussed in this presentation
