Description Camarões de lama da família Upogebiidae são organismos importantes de comunidades de substrato não consolidado, onde eles cavam tocas agindo como engenheiros ecossistêmicos. O presente estudo descreve alguns parâmetros da estrutura populacional e biologia reprodutiva do camarão de lama Upogebia omissa. A coleta dos indivíduos foi realizada no estuário do rio Vaza-Barris, estado de Sergipe, nordeste do Brasil. Em laboratório, os espécimes foram sexados e mensurados quanto ao comprimento da carapaça (CL). Fêmeas ovígeras tiveram o total de ovos contados. O tamanho do corpo variou entre 3,0 e 12,9 mm CL, sendo os machos significativamente menores que as fêmeas. A razão sexual média foi de 0,34, voltado para as fêmeas (teste binomial, P = 0,001). A fecundidade variou de 240 a 2339 ovos por fêmea, e foi significativamente afetada pelo tamanho do corpo. Dimorfismo sexual evidenciado pelo tamanho médio de cada sexo é um padrão comum em decápodes que incubam ovos, e nesse caso, a fecundidade normalmente varia em função do tamanho do corpo. Por fim, sugerimos que estudos adicionais são necessários, devido à importância ecológica desses camarões de lama e da escassez de estudos sobre eles.Palavras chave: Fecundidade, dimorfismo sexual, camarão de lama, estuário.
