Reproductive biology

Remipedes are simultaneous hermaphrodites. The ovary originates in the head, and the oviducts extend to the base of the seventh swimming appendage where the female gonopore is found. The testes originate in the segment of the seventh swimming appendage, and the vas deferens extends to the fourteenth swimming appendage where the male gonopore is located. Sperm is flagellated and packaged into spermatophores. To date, nothing is known about remipede development. Tiny juveniles have been collected. Resembling adults, they are about one-third the length of adults and have at least 14 swimming appendages.
