Larvae with development abbreviated to three or fewer instars follow the above pattern in development of the eyestalks and uropods. However, all other appendages including pleopod buds are present from zoea 1 onwards. For example, a zoea 3 larva with abbreviated development has rudimentary uropod endopods but also has large pleopod buds and is similar in other respects to late larvae with unabbreviated development.
