PROCEEDINGS OF THE BIOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON 110(1):154. 1997. Selection of a type species for Farfantepenaeus Burukovsky (Crustacea: Decapoda: Penaeidae) Rudolf N. Burukovsky Department of Hydrobiology, Kaliningrad State Technical University, Sovetsky Avenue 1, 236000 Kaliningrad, Russia. Abstract. — Penaeus brasiliensis Latreille, 1817, is selected as the type spe-cies of the subgenus Farfantepenaeus Burukovsky, of the genus Penaeus. The complex penaeid shrimp genus Pe-naeus Fabricius, 1798, has over time, been divided into a number of subgenera, includ-ing the nominate subgenus Penaeus, Meli-certus Rafinesque-Schmaltz, 1814, Litopen-aeus Perez Farfante, 1969, Fenneropenaeus Perez Farfante, 1969, and Farfantepenaeus Burukovsky, 1972. In a paper on the systematics and distri-bution of species of Penaeus, Burukovsky (1972) proposed the new subgenus Farfan-tepenaeus, included in it the species P. duorarum, P. brasiliensis, P. aztecus, P. calif orniensis, P. brevirostris, and P. pau-lensis, but did not designate a type species. According to Article 13b of the Internation-al Code of Zoological Nomenclature (1985), any genus-group name published after 1930 must be accompanied by the fix-ation of a type species, to make the name available. This brief note is published to correct this situation.
