Abstract: The first stage zoeas of Atergatis subdentatus (de Haan, 1835), Atergatopsis germaini A. Milne-Edwards, 1865, and Platypodia eydouxi (A. Milne-Edwards, 1865) are described for the first time, Actaeodes tomentosus (H. Milne Edwards, 1834) are fully illustrated, Atergatis floridus (Linnaeus, 1767) are redescribed, and those of Platypodiella spectabilis (Herbst, 1794) are re-examined. A list of characters is tabulated for all known zosimine first stage zoeas. The zoeal evidence appears to support adult taxonomy by highlighting the difficulties in clarifying the systematics within the xanthoidean taxa, Zosiminae Alcock, 1898 and Actaeinae Alcock, 1898. © National University of Singapore.
