Abstract
    Some of the major criteria for identifying the larvae and early postlarvae of the penaeid prawns of the Indian Ocean are presented based on the study on material collected during the International Indian Ocean Expedition (1960-'65). The key also permits identification of the species of protozoeae, mysis and postlarvae of 13 genera, both of commercial importance and of less commercial value. The present key provides criteria for identification of the larvae and postlarvae of the following genera, Penaeus Fabricius; Metapenaeus Wood-Mason and Alcock; Parapendeopsis Wood-Mason; Parapenaeus Smith; Trachypenaeus Alcock, Metapenaeopsis Bouvier; Atypopenaeus Alcock, Penaeopsis Bate; Funchalia Johnson; Trachypenaeopsis Burkenroad; Sicyonia H.M. Edwards; Aristaeomorpha Wood-Mason and Solenocera Lucas.
