dc.description.abstractThe embryonic and larval stages of Schizomus floridanus are described, with special emphasis on the morphology of the larval tarsi. Schizomus floridainus is facultatively if not completely parthenogenetic. Females are capable of producing young after being raised apart from males for over a year. Breeding specimens were found in south Florida in August. The lack of a nesting chamber and the small number of embryos found on the brooding females resembles the situation reported for cavernicolous members of the order. A simple method of long-term culture is described, and additional notes on ecology and behavior are given.
