The genus Miyadiella was described by Kubo represents two species namely Miyadiella podophthalmus Stimpson and Miyadiella ornate. The validity of the genus was questioned by Starobogatov, Holthuis and Burkenroad. Type species of the genus Miyadiella pedunculata was synonymiesed under Penaeus podopthalmus by Starobogatov and the genus was synonymised under Atypopenaeus created by Alcock. But it was Hayashi who strongly stated that long eyestalk is the typical character for the genus Miyadiella. Pérez-Farfante and Kensley also supports Hayashi’s view and tentatively keeps separate Miyadiella from Atypopenaeus by adding two additional typical characters for the genus like presence of spinules on first rostral teeth as well as along the postrostral carina and relatively short fifth periopod. During the present study author got the opportunity to study the materials preserved in Central Marine Fishery Research Institute (CMFRI), Cochin, Tamil Nadu, India [Reg. No. AR. 267, from Bombay, collected by Kunju and labeled as Atypopenaeus stenodactylus, and arrived into conclusion that the specimen will be Miyadiella podopthalmus.
