Descripción: Slipper lobsters, Scyllaridae Latreille, 1825, are characterized by possessing a completely flattened last antennal segment, have a unique larval form particularly adapted to planktonic life and long-distance dispersal, the phyllosoma. This planktonic phase contains multiple stages that finally transform into a benthic decapodid, called « nisto » in scyllarid lobsters. Larvae taking up to 2 years to fully develop and metamorphose depending on species. Three scyllarids inhabit in the Mediterranea Sea : Scyllarides latus, known as « castanyola » by fishermans and local residents, Scyllarus arctus or « cigala de roca » and Scyllarus pygmaeus.
