The penaeoid and sergestoid shrimps comprise (he Dendrobranchiata, a suborder of the crustacean order Decapoda. This group is characterized by (a) highly branched gills and (b) a primitive mode of reproduction in which fertilized eggs are not incubated, as in other decapods, but instead are cast into the water, hatching later in the plankton as nauplius larvae. Dendrobranchiate shrimps, with about 500 described species, are important members of shallow and deepwater benthic faunas, and also… Expand
Abstract Species and distribution of Penaeoid shrimps in Thailand were studied in specimens of shrimp collected from fish markets and fishing ports of 23 provinces along the Gulf of Thailand and theExpand
“Crustacea”: Decapoda (Dendrobranchiata)
The dendrobranchiate shrimp are of interest both for commercial importance as food and for their significance as a taxon of decapod crustaceans showing many supposedly plesiomorphic characters. Expand
New genera in the family Sergestidae (Crustacea: Decapoda: Penaeidea)
ABSTRACT The sergestid genus Sergestes is restricted in definition, and five new genera erected: Allosergestes, Deosergestes, Eusergestes, Neosergestes, and Parasergestes. These are defined in termsExpand
New Occurrences of Two Penaeid Species (Crustacea: Decapoda: Dendrobranchiata) in Korean Waters
New occurrences in Korean waters were recorded for two penaeid species: Atypopenaeus stenodactylus (Stimpson, 1860) and Metapenaeopsis toloensis Hall, 1962, which were previously known from theExpand
Presence of giant tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon (Fabricius, 1798) in eastern Península of Yucatan coast, Mexico
The first record of P. monodon is reported in the eastern Peninsula of Yucatan, Mexico, where three giant tiger shrimps were caught in Rio Lagartos lagoon on October 14 and November 25, 2014. Expand
A New Genus of Deep-Sea Solenocerid Shrimp (Decapoda: Penaeoidea) from Papua New Guinea
A new genus and species of deep-sea shrimp, Maximiliaeus odoceros, was collected from the Solomon Sea off Papua New Guinea andPhylogenetic analysis using PEPCK and NaK sequences confirmed that this new taxon belongs to Solenoceridae. Expand
Shrimps from the Santana Group (Cretaceous: Albian): new species (Crustacea: Decapoda: Dendrobranchiata) and new record (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea).
The fossil shrimp Araripenaeus timidus n. gen. n. sp. is the first fossil Penaeoidea from Brazil. Here, we describe, illustrate and compare it with Paleomattea deliciosa, a fossil SergestoideaExpand
Molecular phylogeny of penaeid shrimps inferred from two mitochondrial markers.
The results suggest that the old Penaeus genus is monophyletic and that the inclusion of the Solenocera genus within the Penaeidae family remains uncertain and may contribute to the taxonomic characterization of this family. Expand
Occurrence of Acetes sibogae Hansen (Crustacea: Decapoda: Sergestidae) in Western Australia, with notes on the northern Australian population
Analysis of many specimens of Acetes collected at a site in the Swan River near Perth, Western Australia indicated that the Western Australian population belongs to A. sibogae, a range extension of the genus. Expand
