Abstract: Burkenroad (1934) created two subgenus of the genus Trachypenaeus Alcock, 1901 viz., Trachypenaeus (Trachypenaeus) and Trachypenaeus (Trachysalambria). These two subgenuswere raised to the status of genus by Pérez Farfante and Kensley (1997). The genus Trachypenaeus, s. s. was further divided into two genus namely Megokris and Rimapenaeus by Perez-Farfante and Kensley (1997). Therefore, the original Trachypenaeus Alcock, 1901 is now divided into four established genus such as Trachypenaeus Alcock, 1901, Trachysalambria Burkenroad, 1934, Megokris, Pérez Farfante and Kensley, 1997 and Rimapenaeus, Pérez Farfante and Kensley (1997). Genus Trachysalambria Burkenroad, 1934 represents eight species throughout world. Indian water represents only two species viz., T. aspera (Alcock, 1905) and T. curvirostris (Stimpson, 1860).
