Burkenroad (1934) redefined the genus and relegated this genus as a subgenus of Penaeopsis Bate, 1881, on the basis of the shape of petasma. Kubo (1949), however, re-elevated it to the generic status. Wood-Mason (1891) was the first to record this genus from Indian water as Metapenaeus. Present study reveals that Indian water represents a total of 12 species of the genus Metapenaeopsis Bouvier, 1905. Among these…
