cypris larva
"Bivalved" larval type following the naupliar stage in most cirripedes [Brusca and Brusca, 2002].
Unique larval stage that follows the nauplius stage in cirripedes [Brusca and Brusca, 2002].
(Subclass Cirripedia):
Final larval stage, common to all cirripeds, characterized by bivalved carapace, compound eyes, prehensile antennules, and series of locomotory thoracic appendages (cirri). (See also nauplius). (Syn. cyprid, cyprid larva) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
