Título:
Nisto of slipper lobster

Especie:
Nisto of Scyllarinae subfamily

Descripción:
Achelata lobsters are classified in two main families, Palinuridae, commonly known as spiny lobsters, and the Scyllaridae or slipper lobsters. His life cycle consists of a benthonic phase for the adult and a long planktonic larval phase. These two periods are linked by transitional stage, a post-larva known as nisto for Scyllaridae family and puerulus for Palinuridae family. The post-larval stage is known poorly due to the few specimens obtained in plankton samples and only a few specimens have been described.
