Systematics and Taxonomy
Perez-Farfante and Kensley (1997, cited in Maggioni et al. 2001) proposed that the four Penaeus subgenera of Perez-Farfante (1969) be raised to generic status, changing the name of the White Shrimp from Penaeus setiferus to Litopenaeus setiferus. Although Baldwin et al. (1998) questioned this approach based on their molecular data, additional molecular studies by Maggioni et al. (2001) largely supported the recommendations of Perez-Farfante et al. (1997).
