Note(s): The complete larval development of an echinoid in the family Aspidodiadematidae is described for the first time from in vitro cultures of Aspidodiadema jacobyi, a bathyal species from the Bahamian Slope. Over a period of 5 months, embryos grew from small (98-micron) eggs to very large (3071-micron) and complex planktotrophic echinopluteus larvae.
