Some Freshwater Palaemonid Prawns (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palaemonidae) from Magway Environs
- This study represents a preliminary investigation into the occurrence of freshwater prawn nearby Magway environs. Eight species of the genus Macrobrachium Bate, 1865 namely M. aemulum, M. cavernicola, M. clymene, M. lamarrei, M. lanchesteri, M. latidactylus, M. palaemonoides, M. rosenbergii were recorded. With respect to M. aemulum, M. cavernicola, M. clymene and M. latidactylus, there are no previous record and information. Morphological characters were used to identify the species level. There is a need to extend the study of other freshwater prawns to add to the list of palaemonid species of Myanmar. The authors hoped that this study may contribute substantially to the regional freshwater prawn biodiversity and an additional contribution to Myanmar Carcinology.
