George, M J and Rao, P Vedavyasa (1966) A new species of Metapenaeus (Decapoda, Penaeidae). Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 8 (1). pp. 146-151.
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.
