    The Green tiger prawn Penaeus semisulcatus De Haan, 1844 is the most dominant species supporting the commercial fishery along the southeast coast of India. The abdomen and the carapace are glabrous in nature and the body has dark reddish brown transverse bands. Pleopods are light blue with dark reddish hairs. The taxonomic characters of P. semisulcatus have been well documented by Mohamed (1969). For a long time there was confusion in the identification of this species from the closely related P. monodon. The designation of a neotype of P. monodon in place of the lost original type of Fabricius by Holthuis (1949) has finally resolved the century-long confusion of this species with P. monodon Fabricius.
