Abstract

Clear-cut differences between the juveniles of Penaeus indicus and Penaeus merguiensis are pointed out in this paper. On the basis of the colour pattern of the antennal flagella, antennular flagella and the pleopods, and the disposition of the rostral teeth it is now possible to identify the juveniles of P. indicus and P. merglliensis with certainty.
