The penaeid shrimp, Metapenaeopsis sibogae (De Man, 1907) was previously known only from deep waters in Indonesia and the Philippines. In the present study, the occurrence of this species was reported for the first time from Japanese waters, based on twenty-one specimens collected from Kagoshima Bay, southern Japan, between 130 and 148 m depth. As a result of morphological examination, the ratio of rostrum length to carapace length was found a useful character to distinguish M. sibogae from the sympatric species, M. lata Kubo, 1949, and subspecies, M. provocatoria owstoni Shinomiya & Sakai, 2000. The body colouration of live specimens of M. sibogae is also described. La crevette pénéide Metapenaeopsis sibogae (De Man, 1907) n'était jusqu'à présent connue que des eaux profondes d'Indonésie et des Philippines. Dans le présent travail, la présence de cette espèce est rapportée pour la première fois des eaux japonaises, d'après vingt-et-un spécimens récoltés à Kagoshima Bay, au sud du Japon, entre 130 et 148 mètres de profondeur. Comme résultat de l'examen morphologique, le rapport de la longueur du rostre à celle de la carapace s'est révélé un caractère utile pour distinguer M. sibogae des (sous-)espèces sympatriques M. lata Kubo, 1949 et M. provocatoria owstoni Shinomiya & Sakai, 2000. La coloration du corps des spécimens vivants est également décrite.
