Abstract

A primary mycosis of larvae of the white shrimp, Penaeus setiferus, is described. The disease first became apparent in larvae in the second protozoeal stage and disappeared as the shrimp reached the first mysis stage. Affected shrimp became immobilized by near complete tissue destruction and replacement by the expanding mycelium. The fungus was found to be Lagenidium sp. and was infective to larval brown shrimp, Penaeus aztecus.
