Penaeus (Farfantepenaeus) duorarum - Carré, 2005: 23, Martinique [?Not Farfantepenaeus duorarum (Burkenroad, 1939)].
Comment: P. duorarum duorarum Burkenroad is not present in the Lesser Antilles in Pérez-Faranfante (1969, fig. 28) while the affiliated P. duorarum notialis Pérez Farfante, 1967 is present. Martinique record of P. duorarum by Carré (2005) is perhaps Penaeus notialis instead?
