How many genera are there in the genus Penaeus?
Pérez-Farfante and Kensley (1997) created six more genera by elevating the sub-generic status of Penaeus, defined by Perez-Farfante (1969), to genus status. Pérez-Farfante and Kensley (1997) also created or re-instated three additional genera from within the genus Trachypenaeus. Davie (2002) provisionally continued to treat them as sub-genera.
