Eggs of the lugworm, Arenicola cristata, were exposed for 96 and 168 h to bis(triphenyltin) oxide (TPTO), triphenyltin chloride (TPTC), bis (tri-n-butyltin) oxide (TBTO), and tributyltin acetate (TBTA). Effects were death and abnormal development of larvae. TPTO and TBTO were more toxic than TPTC and TBTA. Several developmental stages, from egg to swimming larva, were exposed to TPTO. The most sensitive stages were early trochophore and early settled stage. The range of concentrations between 100% survival and 100% mortality was narrow in all tests.
