A record of Penaeus (Melicertus) longistylus Kubo, 1943 from Kume Island Okinawa Japan.

First report and shooting the Penaeus (Melicertuslongistylus from Kume Island Okinawa Japan.
Penaeus (Melicertuslongistylus is similar large species Penaeus (Melicertuslatisulcatus. Color also it is very similar.

I met Penaeus (Melicertuslongistylus at night, it was on top of the coral reef. However, perhaps I think that they will live in close sand mud area to reef.
Penaeus (Melicertuslongistylus has red spot of abdominal which is a feature, it is only on the trailing edge of the side surface of the third abdominal segment. Tips of uropods are blue with red hairs.
