  • The new species of pelagic penaeid shrimp lacks the richly plumose arthrobranch described for the genus and has a single pair of terminal spines on the telson. It is found mainly in transitional water of the North Pacific between 500 and 1,000 m by day and 150 and 1,000 m at night. Examination of testes and ovaries, and the structures of the petasma and thelycum, indicates a 4-5 mo spawning season and an equal male to female sex ratio. Generation time was estimated to be 2 yr.
