S.cyanoscelis,the blue legged BCS is similar to S.hispidus,though smaller.
I will try and raise the larvae.Hopefully they are easier to raise than hispidus! :?
This is the newly hatched Zoea 1:

Right,Z1 with sessile eyes.3.2mm excluding the long rostrum.Check the spine on the dorsal hump.
Virtually identical to S.hispidus: viewtopic.php?f=141&t=458
