Direct development thought to result from a delay in hatching of the embryo, which causes the nauplius (and any other possible larval stages) to be suppressed or absent [Brusca and Brusca, 2002].
In which larval stages are supressed or passed within the egg prior to hatching and the juvenile hatches with adult morphology [Ingle, 1992].
