Whilst examining a collection of prawns from the Gulf of Kutch area, three specimens showed clear diflFerences from others. A closer study of the important generic characters made it difficult to assign these specimens to any of the species of Metapenaeus Wood-Mason and Alcock described so far, and hence they are reported here as species new to science.
