Abstract :

The early developmental stages of Hypleurochilus fissicornis (Quoy & Gaimard, 1824) from egg to 120 hours after hatching are described for the first time, from three nests found in the rocky intertidal of Mar de Cobo, Argentina. Eggs are spherical, with an adhesive pad and purple pigment. Larvae have yellowish pigment on the head (snout, preocular, postocular) and pectoral fins. Melanophores cover the peritoneum and 28 occur in a row on the ventral edge of the tail. Les stades de developpement d Hypleurochilus fissicornis (Quoy & Gaimard, 1824) sont decrits jusqu'a 120 heures apres l'eclosion, a partir de trois lots de frai trouves dans la zone intertidale rocheuse de Mar de Cobo, Argentine. Les oeufs sont spheriques, avec une bande adhesive et des pigments violets. Les larves ont des pigments jaunatres sur la tete (museau, pre-oculaire, post-oculaire) et les nageoires pectorales. Le peritoine est pigmente et une rangee de 28 melanophores sur le bord ventral de la queue. Key words.--Blenniidae--Hypleurochilus fissicornis--Spawn--Larval development--Intertidal.
